Dharma Talk - The Three Characteristics of Life

with Sharon Salzberg

7/20/2012 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM at Nalanda West (Map) (One evening)

There is a saying in the Chinese tradition: "If you want to understand the nature of water, look at the waves." If we look deeply into the waves of phenomena of the body and mind, we will see the 3 characteristics that are, according to the Buddha, the nature of life: change, insecurity, and egolessness. Through dialogue, guided meditation and discourse, this evening will explore these three, both experientially and theoretically. Suitable for beginning and advanced practitioners.
