Event Details

The three jewels of the Buddhist path to awakening: Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

This course explores the Buddhist path to awakening by reflecting on the example of the Buddha, understanding the fundamental message of his teachings, the Dharma, and connecting with the spiritual community—the Sangha—dedicated to following in the Buddha’s footsteps.

Discovering the True Nature of Your Heart and Mind explores the life of the Buddha, both in its historical context and from a spiritual perspective, and reflects on the relevance that the Buddha’s life has for us now.

It presents the key principles of the Buddha’s Dharma teachings: including the four noble truths and the four seals, which form the basis for all levels of practice on the Buddhist path. We will explore these powerful teachings through contemplation and practice, including:

  • The insights the Buddha’s teachings offer us about life and death.
  • How Buddhism is both a religion and a science of mind, and how it differs from other religions and philosophies.
  • The Buddhist view of the nature of reality and ourselves.

We will also explore the idea and value of a spiritual community, Sangha and the role it plays in the path to awakening.

This course is relevant for everyone, and we warmly welcome new students to this course. For more experienced students this is a wonderful chance to clarify, reinforce and deepen the crucial principles of our view and practice.
