    BKBH Sacred Buddhist Texts 3 - The Sutra Teaching the Four Factors | Overcoming Bad Karma

    BKBH Sacred Buddhist Texts 3 - The Sutra Teaching the Four Factors | Overcoming Bad Karma

    In this course, we read and analyze the short Buddha text, The Sutra Teaching the Four Factors while explaining the underlying meanings and context surrounding the teaching.
    This is a very important Buddhist text for sincere practitioners because it explains the right way to practice. The teaching of Right Effort is especially important to our study of Buddhism because it highlights how we should address our negative habits and increase our wholesome qualities. As a result, we can find peace of mind that is free from greed, anger, and ignorance, the three poisons that inhibit our spiritual awakening.


    The Sutra teaching the Four Factors explores four key concepts: How to prevent unwholesome qualities that haven't risen from arising, how to remove unwholesome qualities that have already arisen, how to cultivate wholesome qualities that have yet risen, and how to nurture wholesome qualities that have already arisen. By practicing these teachings in our everyday lives, we can purify all our bad karmas by replacing them with virtuous ones.
    The course consists of 4 sections: The introduction, the background of the sutra, the reading and analysis of the sutra, and finally the summary of the practice. By structuring the course such wise, we allow you to not only understand the teaching by reading it first hand, but I also provide deep insight into the context, underlying meaning as well as practical steps to incorporating the teachings of Right Effort into an easy-to-understand practice. 
    Best wishes and hope you enjoy the course.

    BKBH Sacred Buddhist Texts 2 - The Heart Sutra | Heart of the Buddha's Wisdom

    BKBH Sacred Buddhist Texts 2 - The Heart Sutra | Heart of the Buddha's Wisdom

    In this audio course, we read and analyze the short Buddha text, The HeartSutra, while explaining the underlying meanings and context surrounding the teaching.

    This is one of the most popular Buddhist texts and is one of the central texts for the Buddhist School of Emptiness. The teaching of Emptiness is especially important to our study of Buddhism because it highlights the Middle Path, one that refrains from all extremities. As a result, we can find peace of mind that is free from greed, anger, and ignorance, the three poisons that inhibit our spiritual awakening.

    The Heart Sutra explores four key concepts: The underlying essence of emptiness and how not to attach to it, the sense of self one experiences through attachment to the five skandhas, the emptiness of all the Buddhist teachings so as not to attach to them, and the state of Buddhahood as the ultimate liberation. By practicing these teachings in our everyday lives, we can free ourselves from suffering associated with a strong attachment to ego, false thoughts, and impulsive actions.

    The course consists of 4 sections: The introduction, the background of the sutra, the reading and analysis of the sutra, and finally the summary of the practice.

    By structuring the course such wise, we allow you to not only understand the teaching by reading it first hand, but I also provide deep insight into the context, underlying meaning as well as practical steps to incorporating the teachings of Emptiness into an easy-to-understand practice. 

    Best wishes and hope you enjoy the course.
