    178 - The Four Investigations

    178 - The Four Investigations

    This is episode #178. The topic I have in mind for today is the teaching of "The Four Investigations." This is a teaching that comes from the Yogachara school of Buddhism. According to Yogachara teachings, the key to understanding reality is to understand the mind. There are four investigations we can explore that are intended to help us to have a correct view or understanding of reality.

    There is the Truth of how things really are, and the truth of how things seem to be. These are sometimes referred to as Absolute truth and Relative truth. Relative truths are always dependent on HOW we perceive them.

Great podcast

I love the way Noah breaks down difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand.

Thank you

I am a 45 year old recent law school grad who has struggled to integrate my new studies into my personal ethics and desire to make the world a little better by me having been here. This has helped me in so many ways. Separating the information from the religious labels and context makes it more universal for me . I come here to see the bigger picture when my studies invite me to get sucked into the world of very defined laws. It has helped me integrate these views into my life and not lose myself. And to realize that I can have both and be more effective integrating both. Thanks for being you .
