The deep cause of ill-being is not just desire (Class #19)
September 1 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm PDT
Welcome to a weekly class from Deer Park Monastery on the topic “The 40 Tenets of Plum Village“. This class will take place live on Wednesday nights and will be available to watch on-demand afterwards on our YouTube channel.
In tonight’s class Thay Phap Luu will discuss the 19th tenet: “You should learn to see the Second Noble Truth as the path of the eight wrong practices. The deep cause of ill-being is not just desire.”
This class is based on a book written by our teacher called “Làng Mai nhìn núi Thứu” or “Plum Village Looks at Vulture’s Peak” (an English translation is currently in progress but not yet available). The book describes the essential characteristics of Plum Village practice and teachings.
