Public Talk "Verses 184 and 185 of chapter 14 of Dhammapada"  
by Geshe Dadul Namgyal

6:30 pm
LiveStream

The verses 183, 184, and 185 of chapter 14 of the Dhammapada belong to a single episode in that chapter. Those verses were uttered by the Buddha at Jetavana monastery in response to a query made by Thera Ananda as to whether the essential teachings of the past Buddhas were any different from those of the Buddha himself. Last time, we looked in detail at verse 183, the most common of the three verses. This time, we will look at the remaining two verses and see what practical insights we can gain from them in enhancing our prospects of joy and wellbeing amid all that we are going through in the present time.
