About the event
This is the third session of a seven-part Introduction to Buddhism series.
Parts four to seven will be on the following dates: 22nd April; 20th May; 17th June; and 15th July 2023.
This is a day of introduction to Buddhism through focusing on the preciousness of our life and impermanence. There will be time for contemplation and questions and answers.
The point of meditating on the meaning of our precious human birth is so that we make use of it and we don't waste it. A precious human life in the Buddhist sense has eight freedoms and ten fortunes that give us the opportunity to practice the Dharma.
Meditating on impermanence inspires and moves one to turn to the Dharma. Meditating on impermanence while practicing the Dharma increases ones’ ability to be diligent, and enables practitioners to realize the Dharma fully.
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
