About the event
This is a continuation of the Introduction to Buddhism teachings by Lama Zangmo. Please note that this is not a drop-in class as this event is only open to those who have booked to attend all three teaching sessions.
The Noble Eightfold Path is the essence of the Middle Way, the path between the extremes of self-indulgence and denial. It contains eight interrelated aspects that make up the 'skilful living' that the Buddha taught is necessary to uproot suffering and its causes, and thus to sever the cycle of conditioned existence.
The Noble Eightfold Path comprises the three essentials of Buddhist training, ethical conduct, mental development and wisdom. (Please note that the 'right' in this instance means 'skillful and wise'.)
This day can be attended as a course on its own or as a part of the monthly Introduction to Buddhism series. The course will also include time for Q&A and meditation.
Lunch will be available in our Tibetan Tearoom.
Suitable for anyone wishing to gain more familiarity with the Buddhist teachings.
