Buddhist Meditation Classes in Portland
All people have the capacity to “wake up” from the sleep of ignorance. This course will give us a chance to engage in a mutual exploration of the teachings on emptiness, or “ultimate truth” that allow our wisdom eyes to fully open. From these teachings alone, it is possible to become liberated from our normal problems of daily life and inner struggles of anxiety, stress, depression and so on.
Buddha taught that we have a veil-like ignorance within our minds that prevent us from truly understanding the way the world works, the way we exist, and what is real and what is not. As a result, we live a hectic life full of chasing after mirage-like illusions for pleasure, running away from perceived difficulties, and never finding the real satisfaction and contentment we yearn for. Thankfully, this inner confusion can be identified, eroded, and fully removed, which will leave us feeling uplifted, centered, and, for perhaps the first time, feeling like we have awakened.
