After becoming The Awakened One, or “Buddha,” Siddhartha Gautama, having resisted teaching for some time, finally yielded. His first sermon, The Four Noble Truths, were delivered with the intention of simplifying his profound insight, and they established the core, inalienable tenets of the vast Buddhist teachings.
In this experiential workshop, Rev. angel Kyodo williams reclaims the power and incisiveness of teachings of a man raised to war, turned spiritual warrior. Far from being a salve for passive bystanders, these are “exalted” instructions for those that choose to meet the truth of our lives – and especially the times we are living in right now – with rigor, compassion and, yes, love.
