“When you know for yourselves, ‘These things are wholesome; these things are blameless; these things are praised by the wise; these things, if undertaken and practiced, lead to welfare and happiness,’ then you should engage in them.”
~ The Buddha
AN 3:65



Vesak Talk Three

Matt Flickstein

Matt discusses the essence of some of the Buddha’s teaching: Suffering as a fact of life and the reasons for it. Wanting things to be different from the way they are, which is called Tanha, thirst. We have perceptual distortions which makes us think things are permanent, that we can be happy all the time and that there is a stable core inside ourselves. Ways to see and deal with these distortions and their results are discussed.
