Ending Kamma, Discovering Happiness
13–21 November 2010
(Meditation Retreat: 13–17; Dhamma Workshop: 17–21)
Sāsanārakkha Buddhist Sanctuary
, Taiping
(T/F: 05-8411198 M: 017-5182011 E:office@sasanarakkha.org)
The Buddha taught the
Noble EightfoldPath
as the way to the complete ending of unhappiness. Is it
working for you? Haveyou suffered less with the practice?
Or have you merely “let go” by trying to forgetunwanted thoughts and suppressunpleasant feelings? Or have you beentrying to “accept” by submitting to andenduring them?
Have you understoodthe practice correctly so that it reallyends unhappiness?
Through learning and practice, Āyasmā Kumāra Bhikkhurealises that the Dhamma practice—when done correctly—trulyends unhappiness or stress, and not merely “manages” it. Wecan start with any unhappiness we experience in our lives andwork towards its ending by settling the mind and seeing thingsas they are. As we do that, we peel off the mass of unhappinesswith its egoic attachments—layer by layer—and move closer tothe complete ending of unhappiness.
Join this course to find out how.
