Are you looking to explore the full scope of the Buddha’s teachings, in plain English, from the very beginning right to awakening? Whether you are new to Buddhism, curious, or looking to build on your existing knowledge, this is the class for you (there is no assumed knowledge and all are welcome).
Ayya Suvira will be teaching the classic text compiled by Venerable Nyanatiloka and edited by Ajahn Brahm, the “Word of the Buddha” which provides a staged summary of the Buddha Dhamma. This text works around a structure of the four noble truths to give us a rare and valuable chance to explore the complete map of the Buddha’s path of practice.
