For practicing Buddhists, learning entails more than attending university classes and completing assignments.

Laiman Mai, a Buddhist who received her Ph.D. from UW-Madison and has lectured at the UW-Madison Buddhism Study Group during the past 25 years, distinguishes the knowledge of her religion from the knowledge of her degree.


"Buddhist wisdom is very different from getting a Ph.D.," Mai said. "You have to see things as they are, especially the mind."
