What: Teaching on the Four Noble Truths based on the Pali Canon
Who: Ven. Bhikkhuni Dhammananda
When: 7-11 March, 2012
Where: Deer Park Institute
The Four Noble Truths (Cattāri ariyasaccāni in Pali) — the truth of suffering, the truth of origin of suffering, the truth of cessation of suffering, and the truth of the path leading to cessation — formed part of the first sermon Buddha gave after he attained enlightenment. Buddha expounded this teaching in Deer Park, at Sarnath near Varanasi, and this teaching has been kept alive ever since. In this 5-day program, Venerable Dhammananda will give commentary based on the Pali text on the Four Noble Truths Teaching. There will be morning and evening daily guided meditation. In addition, a small booklet will be available for participants to further their study and understanding.
