Sunday Dharma Talk

The Path to the End of Suffering

June 14, 2020

There is path to the end of suffering.  It's a path on which we learn to acknowledge the truth of our suffering.  It's a path that we follow by developing certain skills.  Most importantly, the skills of jhana and heedfulness.  In this dharma talk, Peter Doobinin describes this path that leads us to freedom from suffering and true happiness in our lives.  The talk was given at Downtown Meditation Community in the summer of 2017.

"Over there are the roots of trees; over there, empty dwellings. Practice jhana, monks. Don't be heedless. Don't later fall into regret. This is our message to you."
