TEACHINGS ON DEATH AND DYING

TEACHER

Dr. Reggie Ray

DESCRIPTION

These six talks, spanning seven years of Reggie’s dathün teachings, present an introduction to some of the basic teachings of the Buddhist tradition, emphasizing a Hinayana approach to study and practice. In explaining the meaning of the Buddha’s words, Reggie asks us to let go of our ideas and concepts about who the Buddha was, what he taught, and how we think we are supposed to practice meditation. Instead, he encourages us to explore these teachings on suffering, the four noble truths, the five precepts, and even the idea of enlightenment itself in relationship to our own very direct and intimate experiences of personal discovery.
