The Buddhas Very First Teachings

In this talk, we 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 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.
