Questions from last class:
- The second Noble Truth relates to the cause of suffering. What did the Buddha say was the cause of suffering. How does the Buddha’s assertion relate to your own experience and observations?
- What are some of the benefits of meditation on impermanence?
- What are some aspects of the Dharma that you understand well enough so that you can actually practice taking refuge in the Dharma when faced with suffering?
Practice meditation on impermanence. First practice by observing and contemplating the impermanence of your own body. Then practice the three general contemplations on impermanence discussed in class–the certainty of death, the uncertainty of the time of death, and the certainty that only Dharma benefits at the time of death.
