  Eugene Cash
Things are not what they seem Nor are they otherwise - Buddha This talk explored the role and dynamic of paradox in Buddhist teaching and practice. We looked at the paradox inherent in the experience of the three characteristics -- anicca (impermanence), dukkha (suffering) and anatta (self and not self). As we relax with the paradoxical experience the three characteristics become portals to awakening.

This talk looks at the power our virtual reality of thoughts can hold over our lives.
