A very good introduction to Buddhism and modern science's view of Buddhist beliefs and how Buddhist practices affect the brain.

The professor is very knowledgeable about his subject and the course was most insightful. I recommend this course to anybody who is interested in Buddhist philosophy .

This was a fantastic course from the content to the professor to the assignments. I greatly enjoyed this course and have applied many of the concepts to my own life.
