This Month’s Class Schedule & Topics
October 2020 – How to Solve our Human Problems: The Four Noble Truths
“You should know sufferings. You should abandon origins. You should attain cessations. You should practice the path.”
– Buddha, Sutra of the Four Noble Truths
Do you ever feel like you just want to be happy, but the harder you try to get certain things, the more unhappy you become? Usually, we tend to blame external situations or other people for our suffering and problems, but if we let go of the distractions and negativities in our own mind, external influences will have less and less power to make us miserable. These classes will help us to see the underlying causes of our mental pain and dissatisfaction, then take a solution-oriented approach to letting go of the mental habits that keep us stuck.
Over 2600 years ago, Buddha diagnosed and offered a remedy to our most common and difficult human problems. In this series we will look at Buddha’s Four Noble Truths, which provide a framework from which we can both understand our suffering and problems and learn to be happy in a troubled world.
October 7 – The problem with uncontrolled desire: Suffering
October 14 – The inner source of unhappiness: Origins
