Room: London meditation hall
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche once described suffering as “a necessary and quite delightful topic”. During this programme we will ex­plore our Shambhala lineage’s exposition of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths, which map the entire Buddhist journey.

The Four Noble Truths have the elegance of a medical case-history : we meet our condition, explore its sources and  discover ways to go further.  Our  starting-point is our longing to find an off-switch for pain. So the first and essential step on our Buddhist journey   entails an honest encounter with our own  anxiety, from which our whole journey starts to unfold. A steadily deeper understanding  accompanies each stage of the path, from our  discovery of  - or re-engagement with - meditation (which teaches us the Origin of Suffering and points us towards its Cessation)  up to our embrace of the Eight-fold Path. Exploring the elements of this journey is always fresh and timely, whether we are beginners or experienced meditators.  

Peter Conradi (author of Going Buddhist) will teach both from the Hinayana volume of  Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma (a comprehensive presentation of the three yana journey of the Buddhist Path), The Path of Individual Liberation and also from  the teachings of  Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

No prerequisites.
