Details

The Wheel of Life is a diagram drawn by Buddha that teaches the complete path to enlightenment. Included within it are Buddha’s teachings on The Four Noble Truths, telling us what we should know, abandon, and practice so that we can attain permanent liberation from suffering. It also illustrates the Twelve Dependent-Related Links, a chain-like series of cause and effect that reveals in detail the inner, underlying causes of suffering and how to break free from them forever.

This course will give a practical and contemplative tour of the Wheel of Life and show how we can use this diagram to inspire our meditations and guide us along the spiritual path.  All levels of experience are welcome, from complete beginners to seasoned meditators.
