Dharma Talk: Non-self and the Illusion of Free Will

Ajahn Chandako
with Ajahn Chandako

5/5/2017 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM (Friday evening) at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)

The most distinctive and iconic teaching of the Buddha is that of non-self, that there is no true self, soul or self-existing being behind the flow of actions, speech, thoughts and emotions that we identify with. In this talk we will explore how the Buddha addressed our conventional sense of self, while he simultaneously taught contemplative meditations designed to uproot the delusions that keep us attached to fictitious projections of who we think we are.
