with Yuttadhammo

The Buddha's sermons and teachings pointed toward the true nature of the universe, which is known within Buddhism as the Dharma. He gave his first sermon on the outskirts of the city of Varanasi at a deer park called Sarnath. This first sermon presents an overview of suffering and the way out of suffering. It is called the Four Noble Truths. The Buddha is often described as a physician who first diagnoses an illness and then suggests special medicine to cure the illness. 

Yuttadhammo will hold a discussion on Buddha's teachings and offer a special meditation. This class is appropriate for all levels. We offer chairs, cushions and yoga props to keep you comfortable while you are sitting.
