Course V - The Fourth Noble Truth: The Path of Shila, Samadhi and Prajna

Pre-recorded talks are with Acharya Eric Spiegel and Acharya Marianne Bots

This is the fifth and final course in a series exploring the profundity of the Hinayana teachings of the Buddha.

Course Outline

We have been studying the Buddha’s first teaching: The Four Noble Truths. After teaching that suffering is pervasive to all experience, that there is a cause to that suffering and that cessation is possible, he then taught a way forward, which we call ”The Path.” In fact, everything he taught and all of our experience as practitioners comprise “The Path.” In this course, we will examine Path from multiple perspectives of what has been taught and what is experienced by we individuals walking this path.
