Lesson 4 – Siddhartha Guatama – Part Four

Siddhartha Guatama, ‘the Buddha’

In this session, we will be looking at the other seven spokes of the Eightfold Path, Buddha Nature and how the operations of our deluded mind keep us bound in creation and how to wake up from that delusion.

When reading them ponder the following three questions:

  • How does Buddha Nature relate to the Eightfold Path?
  • What is the concept of the discriminating mind in the Lankavatara Sutra and how does it bind us to creation?
  • What is the relationship between the view of mental operations laid out in the Lankavatara Sutra and the spokes of Right Effort and Right Concentration in the Eightfold Path?
