The understanding of Dukkha - the first noble truth, as well as one of the three characteristics of phenomena - opens our hearts and minds into the peace of wisdom and the beauty of compassion.
2011-11-24 Anatta: Investigating the Misperception of Self 57:59
Carol Wilson
As has been said, the self is a ghost that appears to exist only because it is not investigated. In this talk we explore some of the ways that we perceive experience inaccurately and create a view of lasting self. We also mention the advice of Achaan Buddhadasa to generate a contentment with emptiness.
