A handful of leaves
led by Martin Evans
The Buddha taught only what is useful to free us from suffering.
Our task is to use his teaching for the purpose it is intended.
It is a simple message – keep things simple – go to the core of the teachings.
And what is the core – the essence?
It is the four noble truths:
‘This is suffering; this is the origin of suffering;
this is the cessation of suffering;
this is the way leading to the cessation of suffering.’
Structure to the day
You can start joining the online group at 9.25am and there will be a short orientation talk at 9.35 am. The day finishes at 4.30pm.
