A Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path Structured Study


The purpose of the Buddha’s Dhamma is to end ignorance of Four Noble Truths and awaken to the true nature of human reality. Within the complexity and distractions of modern life, the Triple Refuge of a human Buddha, his still extant Dhamma, and a well-focused and well-informed Sangha continue to bring liberation and freedom from stress, discontent, dis-ease, and suffering remains as unencumbered and free of adaptation, accommodation, and embellishment as when it was first presented over 2,500 years ago.

These suttas have been restored by John to their original focus and intent. It is these suttas that our Dhamma teachers will present in this Structured Study of the only path Siddartha Gotama realized, developed, practiced, and taught for the final forty-five years of this remarkable man’s life.
