Saraha Children’s School in Eugene, OR, along with the other schools in the area, started classes on Sept. 4 and will mirror the public school’s schedule. But the curriculum will be a little different.
In addition to an integrated curriculum of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies, students will also be introduced traditional Buddhist arts such as meditation, and the classroom will incorporate language and practices of compassion, wisdom, and peace.
The school, launched just six months ago by Lama Sonam Tsering, will operate under the direction of the Saraha Nyingma Buddhist Institute and classes will be held in its facilities.
