First Teaching of the Year

The Four Noble Truths

with Geshe Wangchen

Sundays 10am 24 February, 3 March

The very first teaching that Buddha Shakyamuni gave after becoming enlightened was on The Four Noble Truths. This teaching shares four major insights of the Buddha’s enlightenment:  the depths and variety of suffering we experience, the causes of our suffering, the fact that it is possible to achieve the cessation of all of our suffering and an introduction to the path that leads to the cessation of suffering. This talk is suitable for all levels and everyone is welcome.
