2012-11-14 The Noble Eightfold Path to Freedom - Talk 1 of 3 1:32:46
  Gina Sharpe
The Fourth Noble Truth expounded by the Buddha is that there is a Path to Freedom, to Liberation, to the sure heart’s release. He said that freedom is possible, and that if it were not possible, he would not ask us to walk the path to it. How can we use all of our life, its 10,000 joys and its 10,000 sorrows, as the ground of liberation, of freedom? By understanding the three pronged path of Meditation, of living a life of Integrity, and of developing Wisdom and putting our understanding into action, liberation is not a distant goal, but a present moment experience. Through practice, reflection and inquiry, we will deepen our understanding of the Path, its obstacles and its realization.
