Building on the ongoing success of the Jungto Dharma School online study program launched in early 2022, Jungto Society, the international Buddhist community founded by the revered Korean Seon (Zen) master and social activist Venerable Pomnyun Sunim (법륜스님), has announced that Jungto Dharma School will return in April, with online registration now open to new students.
Ven. Pomnyun Sunim, the guiding Dharma teacher of Jungto Society, first opened Jungto Dharma School in Korea 32 years ago as way to share the original teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha with lay practitioners. In response to social restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, Jungto Society formulated an online English-language syllabus—Jungto Dharma School: Introduction to Buddhism I—which is now open to students of Buddhism all over the world.
“In Jungto Dharma School, you will learn the original teachings of the Buddha under the guidance of Ven. Pomnyun Sunim,” Jungto Society explained. “You will learn how the mind works and experience changes in your perspective on life. As students of Jungto Dharma School, you will not only study Buddhist doctrines (the Buddha’s core teachings) but also gain practical wisdom to help you resolve various problems in your life.” (Jungto Society)
