The Buddha lived all of two and a half thousand years ago. However, the writings of the Pali Canon offer us a window onto his words and his personality. Join us for study of these earliest Buddhist scriptures, exploring what message they might have for us in these unprecedented and uncertain times. We will start each session with a brief period of Pali chanting and meditation before we read and reflect on a sutta. Join us for an exploration of the very roots of the Buddhist tradition.

The Buddha taught: “One who sees dependent origination sees the Dhamma; one who sees the Dhamma sees dependent origination.’ This month we will continue our explorations of the central teaching of the law of conditionality, often termed Dependent Origination, as presented in the Pali Canon. We will seek to draw out some more of the implications for our day-to-day lives of this teaching that is ‘deep, hard to see and hard to understand’.

Out of a number of suttas in which the Buddha teaches about dependent origination we will focus on the Kaccayanagotta Sutta accessible using this LINK.
