Content / Description

Cycle of life and death: no end unless we choose the path taught by the Lord Buddha; Dukkha: boredom is dukkha, why do we grab our cellphone or watch TV?; Suicide: you go to hell for that, not the way to evade dukkha, you're still reborn; Exposition of the 4 Noble Truths; Citta: “the one who knows”, our true self that doesn't arise or cease; Body: we place so much importance on it but at the end, it dies; Happiness: with samadhi, it doesn't cost any money, just stay on Buddho; Premonition and dreams; Fear of death: the more you do good, the less you're afraid to die because the citta knows where it is going.
