Information om evenemang

Based on the first teaching the Buddha gave in India after he gained enlightenment, this course will focus on why we face so many problems in life. By identifying the root of our problems, we can then begin to work with them more effectively.

The Buddha was once human being who just like us faced every challenge, difficulties and problems of life. It was this very pursuit of seeking a means to end all suffering and experience true happiness that led the Buddha to engage in many years of mediation practices. When he eventually attained enlightenment, he discovered that every human being has the same potential to reach enlightenment as well. Thus, moved by unconditional love and compassion for all living beings, he gave his first teaching, known to this day as the Four Noble Truths. His teachings and advice are drawn from his own experiences and insights.

The presentation will be on a beginner’s level but is also suitable for those who are already familiar with Buddhism. The presentation and discussions will help to expand your understanding of the Buddhist teachings in general and the meditation technique in particular.
