Venerable Dekyi distinguishes herself as a warm, friendly and down-to-earth teacher of dharma. She is a resident teacher at Vajrayana Institute in Sydney where she teaches drop in meditation sessions as well as regular retreats. She has taught at several other FPMT centres, including Tushita in Dharamsala, India.
Dekyi-la has a great love of the Blue Mountains and is enthusiastic about teaching here in April. As well as the one hour basic meditation class, she will teach on the profound topic of the 4 Noble Truths.
Shakyamuni Buddha’s first teaching was on the Four Noble Truths: the truths of suffering, the cause of suffering, the cessation of suffering and the path to the cessation of suffering. More simply put, suffering exists, it has a cause, it has an end, and it has a cause to bring about its end.
The four noble truths are well known as the Buddha’s most essential explanation of his realisations. The truths diagnose the human existential crisis and prescribe a solution that you can start to put into practice in your everyday life.
Ven Dekyi encourages questions and interactive discussions during each class and says “there’s no such thing as a silly question“ These classes are suitable for beginner to intermediate level students.
Classes will commence on Thursday April 8th
