Buddha’s 4 Big Truths: Liberation from Suffering

February 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 26, 2020

A four class series with Mushim Ikeda 

Why do we suffer? How can we be released from suffering? The Buddha’s first teaching after his Enlightenment is called the Four Truths for Noble Ones. These form the foundation of Buddhist life and understanding. The four “big” truths address human suffering and oppression, analyze their root causes, and describe a path of liberation from human suffering that is both profound and practical. Dharma talks, interactive exercises, journaling, meditation and optional readings. Beginners in meditation are welcome.
