The Four Noble Truths
Tuesdays, 7:30 - 9 p.m.
May 13 - June 10
with Zenshin Greg Fain
Dukkha, Samudaya, Nirodha, and Marga. Diagnosis, Etiology, Prognosis, and Prescription. In this class we will deeply examine the Great Physician Shakyamuni Buddha's formula for addressing the ills of a suffering world. From the first turning of the wheel of the Dharma at age 35, and through 45 years of ministry, Shakyamuni Buddha taught this time-tested formula again and again. We will examine this simple and powerful teaching in the context of its place in history as well as its relevance for the world today. Reference texts will be The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching by Thich Nhat Hanh and A Concise History of Buddhism by Andrew Skilton. Appropriate for all levels of practice experience.
