This course will give an introduction over two Sundays to the three Jewels - the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha; the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path with time for Q&A.

This was the very first teaching that the Buddha gave after he attained enlightenment. It is referred to as the 'First Turning of the Wheel of Dharma' because it represents the first phase of the Buddha's teaching.

The Noble Eightfold Path

The Noble Eightfold Path is the essence of the Middle Way, the path between the extremes of self-indulgence and denial. It contains eight interrelated aspects that make up the 'skilful living' that the Buddha taught is necessary to uproot suffering and its causes, and thus to sever the cycle of conditioned existence.

The Noble Eightfold Path comprises the three essentials of Buddhist training: ethical conduct, mental development and wisdom.

This two-part course is especially for beginners but is suitable for anyone wishing to gain more familiarity with the Buddhist teachings. This course is in-person only.
