The Most Essential Teaching: The Four Noble Truths with Geshe Tashi Tsering
April 3, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
“Whatever we study after the four noble truths will echo back to this most essential teaching, and conversely this teaching will be revealed in everything else we study.”–Geshe Tashi Tsering
Shantideva Center is delighted to host Khen Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering, abbot of Sera Mey Monastic University, to teach on the Buddha’s first and most essential teaching. The whole of Buddhist philosophy and the entire path to enlightenment can be found in the four noble truths:
1. Life is characterized by suffering.
2. The cause of suffering is ignorance.
3. The cessation of suffering is attainable.
4. There is a path to the cessation of suffering.
This spring, contemplate these four noble truths with the skilled guidance of Geshe Tashi Tsering. In his characteristic warmth and clarity, Geshe-la will offer a series of four online Saturday morning teachings on the Four Noble Truths Sutra (also known as “Setting in Motion the Wheel of the Dhamma”). By listening to teachings on this text, we will become familiar with the three phases of engaging with these truths: knowing the nature of the truth, knowing what needs to be done in connection with that truth, and finally, accomplishing what needs to be done. This foundational teaching is always relevant, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey!
