Each month, we’ll focus on a different topic in our weekly classes; for the month of November the topic will be:

Introduction to Buddhism

Buddha gave many teachings to help us find solutions to our problems and mental pain. For example, he taught that by being aware of our own mortality our life becomes more meaningful. He helped people to understand why things happen in the way that they do, or why at all, when he explained karma: the law of cause and effect. By applying these and other basic Buddhist principles to our everyday lives we can experience greater contentment and inner freedom.
