Scott Tusa teaching on Essential Dharma
September 5, 2019 –
“Just as the great ocean has one taste, the taste of salt, so also this teaching and discipline has one taste, the taste of liberation.” The Buddha
2,600 years ago an Indian prince awoke to a truth, one so simple yet so subtle, he felt the need to stay silent and that no one would be able to comprehend this truth. Entreated to teach, the prince who would eventually come to be known as the Buddha or awakened one, turned the wheel of the teachings on this profound truth, ushering an abundance of spiritual wealth and goodness into our world. All of this benefit and goodness was not the result of material progress or social upheaval, but instead was the fruit born of one man’s inner transformation.
Join us for an evening talk exploring this inner transformation, diving deep into the practices and tradition it spawned. Through periods of mediation, discussion, and experiential learning we will discover how to deepen and bring the Buddhist path into our lives, finding greater efficacy in overcoming mental and emotional habits that cause us unnecessary suffering. All are welcome!
