BUDDHISM AS A LIVED EXPERIENCE

Dr. Lewis Lancaster Lecture Series

“The state of enlightened awareness achieved by the Buddha has always been seen as a great accomplishment that required lifetimes of practice culminating in the final birth when Nirvana was fully encompassed. This implies a long and arduous career of dedicated time. How can such teaching find meaning within the immediate events of living each day?”
