Understanding Sensuality

The Buddhist Teachings on the Gratification, Danger and Escape from the Mind's Attachment to Sense Experience. We are constantly touched by sense experience and usually react in predictable ways by grasping what is perceived as pleasant, ignoring what is seen as neutral, and being averse
to what appears to be unpleasant. The Buddha emphasized the limitations of sense experience as a place for lasting happiness. In this course we will carefully examine our actual experience of gratification, the actual danger that arises with attachment to sense experience, and the actual escape from these dangers through the realization of the heart free from grasping.
