If you have a question about this talk, please contact Himantha Cooray.

Most people live happily/unhappily in the world, under the cover of delusions, to avoid what’s real, because the reality of life is dissatisfactory. The four delusive views that they hold are: that things and conditions are permanent, satisfactory, imbued with an essence, and are beautiful. Hence they enjoy life, with its ups and downs, and therefore do not enter on the path towards Awakening.

The talk will be about the examining the realities of life and the set of necessary practices that will lead towards Awakening.

The talk is part of a special “Meditation Evening” beginning at 17:00. The talk will be followed by a discussion and a guided meditation session. You are welcome to take part in the whole event or just come for the talk. The full event programme is as follows:
