Discussion Group for Under 35s: The Four Noble Truths
“The Buddhist path begins with the recognition of suffering – not just the pointed suffering of sickness, aging, or death, but the vague feeling of anxiety and dissatisfaction that underlies every moment of our lives. Buddhism calls this dukkah, and the bad news is that it’s all-pervasive and universal. The good news is that this is where the genuine spiritual journey begins” – Traleg Rinpoche IX
We hear a lot about Buddhism and suffering – some accurate, some misconceptions – the root of the word suffering is complex.
In the four noble truths, the Buddha taught about suffering; what suffering is, what causes it, that it can be ceased and the path that leads out of suffering.
But what exactly was meant by suffering, when he taught in this way?
In this four part series, we will deep dive into each noble truth. These open discussions are facilitated by students of Traleg Rinpoche IX who have engaged in long study of Buddhist philosophy. You will be provided with reading material to help facilitate your learning.
Sessions will run via Zoom on Tuesdays in May at 6:30pm. Cost is by donation.
