Based on the book 'How to Solve our Human Problems'.
The Four Noble Truths
Buddha long ago pointed out that though humans universally seek happiness it consistently eludes them and though they seek to avoid suffering it "falls upon them like rain". The root of the problem, he taught, is a deep ignorance about the nature of happiness and suffering and their causes.
The Sutra on the Four Noble Truths is one of Buddha's best known teachings.
It provides a simple but profound guide to developing a much clearer perspective on suffering and its causes, and sets out some practical steps to solving our problems, so that we can become happier and more peaceful on a more enduring and stable basis.
Problem Solving with Meditation
- The 'winter warmers' series is a regular feature of our programme.
- The classes are taught by students who have been attending study classes at the centre.
- They bring a fresh range of perspectives drawn from their experiences of using Buddha's teachings to guide them as they negotiate the ups and downs of everyday life.
This year the classes are based on the Four Noble Truths and are drawn from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's book How to Solve Our Human Problems, which explains how we can easily apply these truths to our modern day lives and begin to experience the taste of true, lasting happiness.
