The 10 Questions the Buddha Wouldn’t Answer


The Questions that the Buddha did Answer

One-day Online Meditation Retreat
Brock Brown

The Buddha taught about suffering and the end of suffering – this is a way of referring to the Four Noble Truths – suffering, its cause, the cessation of suffering, and the path leading to the cessation of suffering. In this daylong we will examine the four ways that the Buddha answered questions and how his various ways of responding to questions illuminates his teachings about the path to the end of suffering. This day of practice will include sitting and walking meditation, chanting, reflections and a dharma talk. This day is suitable to both experienced and those who are new to practice.

Brock Brown is a founding member and Chair of the Victoria Insight Meditation Society where he teaches and leads meditation retreats. He has been dedicated to the study and practice of the Buddha's teachings for the past 30 years, and is inspired by the Thai Forest Tradition. He is a graduate of the Spirit Rock Dedicated Practitioners Program and the Community Dharma Leader Program. Brock has spent a month in Thailand staying at a Thai forest monastery in the Ajahn Chah lineage and travelled to India to visit the Buddhist holy sites.

Thank you.
