The Four Noble Truths

Sun 7/12, 7/19 at 2-4:30 pm (Tibetan/Chinese/English)

The Buddha's first teaching after his Enlightenment centered on the Four Noble Truths, which is the foundation of Buddhism. The truths are: the truth of suffering, the truth of the cause of suffering, the truth of cessation and the truth of the path that frees us from suffering. To ensure that all students gain a firm understanding of this important subject, this class will be in a discussion format with a focus on incorporating the teachings into our daily life.
