The College of Buddhist Studies - Los Angeles

Twenty Years of Service to the
Los Angeles Buddhist Community
1983 - 2003

A major project of the Sangha Council of Southern California and the Ven. Dr. H. Ratanasara was 'The College of Buddhist Studies'. First begun in September of 1983 and closed in 2003. The College offerd a variety of courses in Buddhism and Asian languages, both canonical and modern. The College curriculum was divided into two sections: the program of academic studies and the program of community course studies.

An important part of the College program was the year long Dharma Teacher's Course, designed for serious students who wanted a systematic study of the development of Buddhism from its beginning roots.
