In reality, everything is impermanent – transforming, changing like lightening from one moment to the next – like a dream. Rather than connecting with reality, we hold onto a belief that everything, including ourselves, remain the same – perhaps only changing very gradually over time.
Buddha taught that nothing exists in this way. The reality is that everything that we see or perceive is momentary. Through contemplating the impermanence of things, we will understand there is no sense in developing attachment or anger. Why? There is nothing remaining or abiding from one moment to the next. With this wisdom we can reduce our delusions and realize our limitless potential for positive change.
In this course we will learn to contemplate and meditate on this knowledge to develop profound wisdom. These teachings, given by Buddha Shakyamuni, will help us see that our conceptual thoughts are temporary, like water bubbles. With this wisdom of impermanence we can make our mind calm and relaxed, and solve all our daily problems.
This course is perfect for beginners and for experienced meditators. Everyone welcome. If you would like to attend the in-class session, please RSVP as we have limited space.
