Buddha's Four Noble Truths

Buddha Shakyamuni’s first teaching explained the true nature of our suffering, its cause, and how to become free from it. His timeless words show us how to bring all our pain and problems to an end, by attaining a permanent cessation of suffering and its causes. Reducing the causes of suffering in our mind, and filling our heart with the wisdom of loving kindness gives our life great beauty and meaning. It is the essence of the path to liberation and enlightenment. 

Over these nine meditation sessions in three days, we will contemplate and meditate on the Four Noble Truths in the context of the paths of the initial and intermediate scope, and arrive at a sincere wish to practice the path to pure happiness.
