The First Noble Truth and The Space to Choose

by Hridayagita (2016)

A talk given on an Open Retreat called The Space to Choose at Taraloka. Hridayagita encourages reflection on the Four Noble Truths and particularly the first one as a way to quit running from or trying to fix samsara.
First we really have to understand that suffering is an inevitable part of life and why the Buddha gave the Four Noble Truth formula as his first turning of the wheel of the Dharma. Then we can find the Space to Choose how we might respond with awareness, kindness and equanimity.
