Topic #2: The Buddha

The Buddha is the founder of Buddhism.  Besides getting to know him, you will begin to see some fascinating features of Buddhism.  For example, you will find that gods play no role whatsoever in the enlightenment of the Buddha, which explains the nontheistic nature of Buddhism.  You will also find the central role of joy and investigation in the Buddha’s enlightenment, again foretelling their central role in his eventual teachings.


Topic #4: The Second Noble Truth

The second noble truth leads us to an extremely important insight, that suffering is caused. Therefore, the solution to suffering is simply to “uncause” the causes of suffering. Easy peasy.  Here, we also begin the explore the mystical side of Buddhism.


Topic #6: The Fourth Noble Truth and the Noble Eightfold Path

How do you get to the state of total freedom from suffering? The path is contained within the fourth noble truth. It comes in eight parts, which is why is it also called <drumroll…> the Noble Eightfold Path.
