The Buddha's Basic Teachings
Six Tuesdays, March 18-April 29
7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
This six-part class series offers a solid introduction to the Buddha's core teachings, which date back 2,600 years. Those teachings are very practical and down to earth, yet surprisingly radical. As a general framework, we'll use the Buddha's "four noble truths," which contain all his other essential teachings as well. This is not just a lecture series but an opportunity to investigate these remarkable teachings together.
The class meets every Tuesday night, March 18th through April 22nd, from 7 to 9:00. The address is 2514 SE Madison Street, one block north of Hawthorne. This series is offered without charge; donations to Friends of the Dhamma are gratefully received. Matthew Grad will be teaching. You can contact him here.
Portland Friends of the Dhamma is a lay Buddhist community affiliated and guided by the lineage of Ajahn Chah and Abhayagiri Monastery.
Enjoy silent meditation, Dhamma talks and community activities designed to support our understanding and experience of the Buddha's teachings in daily life.
