Description

You should know sufferings,

You should abandon Origins,

You should attain cessations,

You should practice the path”

~ Sutra on the Four Noble Truths

All Buddha’s teachings can be condensed into the practice of the four noble truths, one of the first teachings Buddha gave revealing how can attain the lasting peace of mind known as liberation or ‘Nirvana’. These classes will explore the essence of these instructions, how we can bring them into our heart through meditation and then apply them practically within our lives.


Mon 7th August - Understanding Our Human Condition

“You should know suffering”.
In this class we will learn how to face the truth of suffering with confidence and how we can use our experience of life’s difficulties to develop the joyful mind of renunciation which opens the door to the spiritual path.


Mon 14th Aug - Addressing the Root of Suffering & Problems

“If your mind is released permanently from self-grasping, you will definitely be permanently released from suffering.” ~ Mahasiddha Saraha

Buddha taught that the origin of all suffering and problems is a mistaken view of reality called self-grasping ignorance. By recognizing, reducing and eventually abandoning this inner poison we can actualize our potential for permanent peace.


Mon 21st Aug - Peace is possible

“You should attain cessations”.
Everybody experiences temporary liberation from particular problems- but this is not good enough as more problems quickly take their place and we remain within a cycle of suffering and dissatisfaction. This class will explore how we can accomplish a permanent abandonment or cessation of suffering and its causes and how we can train in a similitude of this experience right now.


Mon 28th Aug - Following the Spiritual Path

“You should practice the path”.
The method to actually free ourself from suffering is the practice of the three Higher Trainings- training in moral discipline, concentration and wisdom motivated by a wish to experience permanent freedom. This class will introduce the essence of these trainings and more detailed explanation will be given in our next series of classes.
