Religions of Ancient India
This is a short extract from a lecture given by Dr Naomi Appleton on the first/second-year undergraduate course Religions of Ancient India in spring 2020. Get a taste for what it is like to attend a lecture in the largest lecture room in New College, and learn a bit about some basic teachings, especially the four noble truths.
In this next short video, Naomi Appleton tells the story of the sick boy Vadika, the sixth story of the Indian Buddhist narrative collection known as the Avadanasataka. For a full translation see her book Many Buddhas, One Buddha (Sheffield: Equinox, 2020).
