Friends & Newcomers Night

Thursday, June 23rd @ 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Soon after the Buddha’s Enlightenment he looked to see who would be receptive to what had happened to him and all the factors that came into place for it all to take place.  He thought of each of his two meditation teachers who would be open to his experience but saw in his minds eye that both had died. He then thought of his five ascetic friends and decided he would go and meet them in Sarnarth, about a weeks walk away from where he was. What happened when he met them what did he have to say?

We do not know for certain what he did actually communicate. We are often told that it was the Four Noble Truths. But what are these?

When the Buddha first began communicating his experience(s) to those five friends what impact did it have on them?
