Today’s podcast episode comes from the Gyalwang Karmapa’s first visit to Paris, France, and is a beautiful teaching on the Four Noble Truths.
This was the very first teaching that the historical Buddha gave and as such it is essential to Buddhists of all traditions, and practitioners of every level. The Karmapa teaches on all of the Noble Truths and discusses how we can overcome different types of suffering.
This episode is two sessions combined into one audio track and thus there is also two question and answer portions where students in the audience ask His Holiness about the refugee crisis in Europe, developing renunciation, and much more.
Karmapa speaks in Tibetan with and English translator.
