The Noble Eightfold Path

The heart of the Buddhist teachings can be found in practicing the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a guide for us to follow if we want to walk the path of awakening and enlightenment. It consists of eight trainings that can be summarized into three parts: the training of wisdom, morality and meditation. It is a holistic practice in that all the eight trainings are interrelated and each is as important as the other. The Noble Eightfold Path involves the practice of Right View, Right Intention, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration. 


Buddhism is often referred to as a philosophy or a way of life. In this video I explain how the Noble Eightfold Path can be integrated into our lives to help us lead a happier life that incorporates the Buddhist principles of peace, compassion and wisdom.

The Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path

The Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path are fundamental teachings in Buddhism. They are considered equally important among all the Buddhist schools and are central to the core of Buddhist beliefs. Sometimes Buddhists are criticized for always talking about suffering (because of the First Noble Truth); yet the majority of Buddhist teachers I've come across, if not all, are the most peaceful and joyous people I've ever met. So surely, there is more to Buddhism than just suffering.


In this video I explain how the Buddha taught the 4 Noble Truths to show us how we can move from a state of unrest to attaining an everlasting peace and happiness, known as nirvana or nibbana. But first, like any good physician, before prescribing the medicine, the Buddha had to diagnose our problems and show us why we feel less than one hundred percent happy most of the time, and what we can do to fix this.
