Day Course

The Wheel of Life

wheel of lifeSaturday 29 February
10am – 4pm
at AKBC with Resident Teacher Kelsang Kunden

The Wheel of Life is a diagram drawn by Buddha that teaches the complete path to enlightenment. Included within it are Buddha’s teachings on The Four Noble Truths, telling us what we should know, abandon, practise and attain. It also illustrates the twelve dependent-related links, a chain-like series of cause and effect that explains the means by which we have been bound to suffering. All of our suffering, difficulties and problems can be explained through understanding this teaching of Buddha. Through contemplating and meditating on the wheel of life, we can break free from this cycle and experience permanent freedom and happiness.

During the day course, our Resident Teacher, Kelsang Kunden,  will guide us to a practical understanding of Buddha’s teaching on the cycle of our existence. This is a special opportunity to learn how to use this diagram to inspire our meditations and guide us along the spiritual path.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of background or previous experience. There will be a break in the day for lunch and refreshments.
