This week, Miles will lead you through these 4 noble practices, helping you to see how these 4 injunctions from the Buddha contain the entirety of the practical Dharma.

    All Worldly Dharma is Buddha Dharma

    Nowadays, many Buddhist practitioners have mistaken views. Taking the false to be true, we can make some progress, but not much.

    As we attune to the truth of impermanence (anicca) the very preciousness of life itself begins to penetrate our awareness: the flowers will not last forever, our dear friends will come and go, those we love will grow old. Even how we chop our vegetables matters if we wan’t to be touched by the the…

    The nature and practice of right view.

Right view comes first among the eight path factors because it is needed for the entire path. Right view can be described as…
