Why do we suffer?

2nd May 2024
4pm–5pm, UK time

We have all experienced suffering, and everyone wants to prevent more suffering if they can. But do we have the power to do so?

This webinar designed for school teachers will share subject knowledge and practical tips for teaching the topic in the classroom. In particular, it will draw out the two distinct explanations of the causes of suffering in Theravada and in Mahayana respectively.

I wish I had this book when I was taking religion in college. This is one book that gives Buddhism in its basics and in an understandable manner. I recommend this book.

5/5

Great book. Always had interest in Buddhism and it’s rare to find a book that honours it as a way of life. This book is perfect for learning about the way of life within Buddhism.
