Below is the schedule for our sixteen-week, thirty-two class study of the Buddha’s meaning of Vipassana – introspective insight into three specific fabricated common human characteristics. Information on our class and streaming schedule is here: Weekly Classes
The Buddha’s intended purpose of his Dhamma is to resolve ignorance of Four Timeless Truths through introspective insight into the clinging relationship between individual ignorance and impermanent phenomena and the stress and suffering that follows from ignorance of self craving for and clinging to fabricated views and experiences.
The structure of our study incorporates suttas that describe Siddartha Gotama’s awakening, what he actually awakened to, his introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha, and the proper Jhana practice necessary for developing refined mindfulness.
Right or refined mindfulness provides the means for holding in mind the Eightfold Path. It is the Eightfold Path that provides the framework and guidance for recognizing and abandoning ignorance of Four Timeless Truths.

If you find benefit here, please
My Dhamma articles and talks are based on the Buddha's teachings (suttas) as preserved in the Sutta Pitaka, the second book of the Pali Canon. I have relied primarily on Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s excellent and insightful translation of the Pali generously made freely available at his website Dhammatalks.org, as well as the works of Acharya Buddharakkhita, Nyanaponika Thera, John Ireland, Maurice Walsh, Hellmuth Hecker, and Sister Khema, among others, as preserved at Access To Insight.
Also, I have found Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations from Wisdom Publications Pali Canon Anthologies to be most informative and an excellent resource.
I have made edits to the suttas from these sources for further clarity, to modernize language, to minimize repetition, and maintain contextual relevance to Dependent Origination and Four Noble Truths.
