This course takes us a journey through the Buddha’s life, illustrating how its stages and key turning points offer valuable insights into how we can bring Buddhist values to dealing with the challenges we ourselves face in this life.
The course is based on teachings given by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in 2020 and the Biography of the Buddha by Thich Nhat Hanh ‘Old Path, White Clouds’.
In the eight sessions we will
- Retrace the historic steps of Prince Siddhartha from his birth to his search for meaning and how he reached enlightenment under the Bodhi tree
- Explore the teachings of the Buddhist Path and the Four Noble Truths
- Examine what it means to have Buddha Nature
- How to apply the teachings of the Buddha to our daily lives
It is suitable for anyone.
We will do this through guided meditations, reflections and discussions in small groups.
