Who am I, and where did I come from? What am I doing here? Where am I going? What does it mean to be alive? These are some of the questions we will be exploring in this course.
Buddha explained that our mental continuum is perpetual, a ceaseless cycle of consciousness; whereas our physical bodies are exceedingly fragile and impermanent. In reality, we are travellers bound for our future lives. This world is not our eternal home. By understanding the nature of our mind and consequently the existence of past and future lives, we will gain a broader and wiser perspective on our life and on what comes next.
Through gaining insights into these fundamental Buddhist beliefs we become more peaceful, live with greater purpose and chart a course for future happiness and success.
