Getting Off the Wheel of Suffering • Download


3 talks on 6 CDs. 

May 9-10, 2015, Pema Osel Do Ngak Choling, Vershire, Vermont. 

We human beings are experts at creating problems for ourselves. Unless we have deep wisdom to guide us, we make the same mistakes over and over again, perpetuating our confusion. Because our unconscious habits take us around in circles, this endless routine is known as the “wheel of suffering.” The Buddha thoroughly examined this universal state of affairs and broke down the chain-like process of delusion into twelve components, known as the Twelve Links of Interdependent Origination. Studying these simple, powerful teachings can give us the clarity and insight we need to step off the wheel and into a new life of freedom, joy, and increased love for others.
