2024 June- One Day course with Geshe Lobsang

The Four Noble Truths and What is Buddhism?Sunday June 30th 2024 - 9:00am - 5:00pm

Why are we interested in a spiritual life and in particular the study of Buddhism?
In his book The Four Noble Truths, His Holiness the Dalai Lama says that our interest in the spiritual life is: "...something very instinctive and there is no need to prove it is there. Happiness is something that we all aspire to achieve and of course we naturally have a right to fulfil this aspiration". (https://fpmt.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2008/10/the_reasons_for_studying_the_four_noble_truths.pdf)


Shakyamuni Buddha taught four noble truths :
The truths of suffering and 
the cause of suffering, and 
the truths of cessation of suffering and 
the path to the cessation of suffering. 
We must recognize and remove the first two and realize through practice the second two.(https://teachingsfromtibet.com/2017/06/01/four-noble-truths-2/)


We can understand this deep subject by considering the simple example of physical illness. When we are sick, we suffer, and look for the underlying cause—a disease or other disorder. When we realize that the illness is curable we see that our suffering can cease and seek treatment—the path to the cessation of this suffering.
Venerable Geshe Lobsang Dorje will be giving a commentary on this topic, the very foundation for the entire Buddhadharma, plus for us to have a deeper understanding of what Buddhism is all about, and to inspire us to study, contemplate and meditate as we traverse our spiritual journey to become a happier person,

leading meaningful life.
