The three marks of existence in Buddhism – Anicca, Dukkha, Anata – are universal characteristics that condition all physical and non-physical phenomena in the universe.
Impermanence (anicca) is the truth that nothing is permanent and everything is constantly changing. Unsatisfactoriness (dukkha) is the truth that since the is no permanent core of experience to hold onto, ultimately all is conditioned by unsatisfactoriness. And Non-self (anata) is the truth that we do not have a fixed, unchanging identity.
These universal characteristics or ultimate realities are at the core of all insights in Vipassana meditation. But what does this practically mean in your meditation? In this Day of Practice with mindfulness and insight meditation teacher Miles Kessler, we will discover the answer.
In this 3-hour live session, Miles will be our guide as we explore Anicca, Dukkha, and Anata in depth, gaining theoretical and practical clarity on how these three Dhammas manifest in our practice.
