Buddha teaches that the cause of all of our suffering is our negative minds, or delusions, which can be condensed into the 3 root delusions of attachment, hatred and ignorance. In this series of classes we will look at the 3 virtuous practices of non-attachment, non-hatred and non-ignorance; at how we can develop them and maintain them in our daily life and how we can ultimately, through training, free ourself from these root causes of our suffering.
Note: A 10-15 minute question and answer period has been added at the end of each class.
This series includes:
Freedom from Desire ~ June 7
Freedom from Selfishness ~ June 21
Limitless Freedom ~ June 28
* No Class June 14 due to the Canadian National Festival which will be online to everyone
