The Buddha’s first teaching included The Four Noble Truths and The Noble Eightfold Path. This class will be a brief overview of those teachings. They were profound over 2,500 years ago and remain so today. The Buddha said these Truths and the Eightfold Path can alleviate our suffering and allow us to find happiness – in this lifetime? Decide for yourself.
Venerable Lekshay Sangpo studied Zen Buddhism for 20 years. After seeing the Dalai Lama in Seattle in 1993, he became a Tibetan Buddhist. He found H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche in 1994, and has been a student of his ever since. He received his getsul (novice) vows in 2001, and his gelung (Bhikshu) vows in 2004, both from H.E. Chogye Trichen Rinpoche in Nepal. He has been living, studying, and teaching Dezhung Rinpoche and the monks at Tharlam Monastery in Nepal part-time since 2000.
