The Four Noble Truths of Whiteness (Part 2 of 2)

with Liz Reynolds

Continuing our contemplation of the Four Noble Truths, this talk will seek to relate the Buddha’s teachings on suffering to the world we have created and are facing today. Building on our exploration in Part I of this talk, we will further investigate the origins of key institutions both of our spiritual tradition and of our nation, taking notice of the ways that our current experience is rooted in events from centuries ago. As we make links between the past and present, we’ll draw on our own understanding of the Third Noble Truth - the cessation of suffering, and reflect together on the potential for liberation from individual and collective suffering.
