Karma and Dependent Origination II

This two part course begins with the eight week study of the Buddha’s teachings on karma and the conditional nature of experience. In part two we continue and deepen our study of conditionality through the study of the Buddha's profound teaching on dependent origination. In this teaching, the Buddha offers insight into the cyclical unfolding of our experience of suffering and how it is possible to realize freedom from these cycles of stress and suffering.
