Weekly Meditation & Dharma - The Buddha’s Very First Teachings

Steve Wilhelm SIMS at University Friends Meeting House

Steve Wilhelm

9/2/2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM  at  SIMS at University Friends Meeting House (4001 9th Ave NE, Seattle, WA, 98105) (Map It)

The Monday evening ongoing class at SIMS starts with a meditation and is followed by a dharma talk. The evening is open to anyone who has had introductory meditation instruction from a qualified instructor. Dharma talks are often presented in series.

On Sept. 2 we will explore the first two sermons the Buddha gave 2,600 years ago, just weeks after attaining enlightenment. In these first two talks he laid out the core principles of his teachings, including the four noble truths, in ways that were startling and transformational to his first five disciples. In fact, they woke up right there. We’ll share a bit about what the Buddha said, why it was so radical, and why it caused such changes among those who were listening to him.
