Breaking the Cycle of Samsara
UNIBUDS WEEKLY Chinese Dhamma Talk
Venerable Neng Rong
For this week's CDT, we will be learning about samsara and twelve links of dependent origination. Samsara refers to the continual repetitive cycle of birth and death of all sentient beings that arises due to their ignorance. This never-ending cycle can be broken by a thorough understanding of Dhamma and the cause of suffering. The twelve links of dependent origination identify the cause of suffering to be ignorance and they describe the mechanism of rebirth.
To learn more about the Dhamma, let's take a short break from our daily work and attend this week's Chinese Dhamma Talk! There will also be a short meditation session at the start of the session. Everyone is welcome!
P.S.: If you don't understand Chinese but wish to attend the class, feel free to contact me so that I can arrange a translator to guide you through during the class.
Speaker's Profile: Venerable Neng Rong is the abbess of Hwa Tsang Monastery. Venerable Neng Rong has earned her Masters in Educational Administration at UNSW in 1993 and her Masters of Arts (Buddhist Studies) from the Taiwan Chung Hwa Institute of Buddhist Studies in 1999.

Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?
UNIBUDS WEEKLY English Dhamma Talk
It's amazing how time flies so quick as we already head in Week 10. So it is good to remember in times of stress, do not fret! Look inwards, and see who is the cause of the trouble that you are experiencing. And perhaps we can think, do we have to act like that? Do we have to make others around us feel down in the same manner that we are experiencing as well?
So that links to this week's talk. Whatever actions we take will affect everyone around us. So it is important for us to think before we act. But does it answer this question that many have wondered for years? How are we linked to one another? How does our own past, present and future affect ourselves individually?
Speaker's Profile: Experienced in both the Mahayana and Theravada teachings, Jim Teoh has been teaching practical Buddhist courses for over ten years. During this time he has taught numerous courses and meditation sessions at one of the earliest Buddhist introductory courses, the Buddhist Library. Jim Teoh is one of our favourite speakers for many years!!! So, make sure you don't miss his talk this time!
