About the event
This is the fourth session of a seven-part Introduction to Buddhism series.
Parts five to seven will be on the following dates: 20th May; 17th June; and 15th July 2023.
Karma, cause and effect should be considered in a broad way. As we are all interdependent, everything we do not only affects ourselves, our family, or people close to us, but has an effect on the whole world. It is very important, therefore, that we all take responsibility for our actions.
Considering the defects of samsara, fundamentally all beings want to be happy; no one wants to suffer. However, when we ask ourselves what real happiness is, some of the things we wish for are counterproductive. Buddhism defines true happiness as liberation from negative actions, afflictions and mental obscurations.
This day can be attended as a course on its own or as a part of the monthly Introduction to Buddhism series. The Series topics are as follows:
Session 1. The Four Noble Truths
Session 2. The Noble Eightfold Path
Session 3. The Precious Human Life & Impermanence
Session 4. Karma & Samsara
Session 5. Entering the Buddhist Path
Session 6. The Spiritual Friend
Session 7. Cultivating Boddhicitta
Each Session will also include time for Q&A and meditation.
Our Tibetan Tearoom & Shop will be serving lunch on a first come basis.
