2016-08-10 Windows on the World: Self-View and the Four Noble Truths 33:53
Philip Jones gave this talk on self-view (or identity-view) and the Four Noble Truths. What does self mean in terms of our own individual lives and how does one let go of it, beginning with self-view? These questions are explored using the metaphor of windows to illustrate the difference between viewing our experiences from the position of self and with the Four Noble Truths. You are invited to investigate this in your own experience.
