The Four Noble Truths
We are delighted to welcome visiting teacher Gen Sanden to Seattle! On Friday, April 20 he will give an evening teaching on The Four Noble Truths. On Saturday he will teach an afternoon workshop on Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully. And on Sunday he will guest teach our 10am meditation class. Full schedule: All Dharma practices are included within the widely-known Buddhist teaching on the Four Noble Truths. By correctly recognizing the real causes of our suffering, and understanding the path that can lead to the cessation of our suffering, we can develop a confident and joyful mind. These timeless teachings from the essence of Buddhism guide us toward realizing our human potential, the attainment of lasting inner peace.
