Creating our World through Karma
(Part of Odyssey to Freedom)

Why is there suffering in the world, individually, in families, societies and nations? According to the Buddha we are creating our world through our own actions and it is our neroses that compel us.

The Numerology of Enlightenment

Buddhists love numbers: the one taste of wisdom, the two levels of reality, the Three Jewels, the four noble truths, the five buddha families, the six paramitas, and so forth.

This lecture looks at how the early Dalai Lamas pointed to easy enlightenment by means of using this simple numbers game.
