What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7294, 7753)
"An incredibly valuable and detailed resource, so useful when it comes to the teaching of this really rather difficult course. So many scriptural references that are really difficult to find for Buddhism. Far better than any textbook or document from the exam board." E Hodkinson, Head of RS and Independent Reviewer
