This last episode of the Groundless Ground Season One features two consecutive dharma talks recently given by Lisa Dale Miller on the five aggregates—the main agent of mental and emotional suffering in the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Noble Truths.
Lisa's first talk deconstructs the illusory ‘heap’ nature of the five aggregates and explicates their pivotal role in both creating and/or liberating us from suffering. The second talk dives deeply into the relationship of the five aggregates to Theravāda teachings on what the Buddha called, deathless or deathlessness, and then tracks this term’s evolution into profound Mahāyāna and Vajrayana teachings on emptiness and buddhanature.
Best wishes for a joyful holiday season and may all beings enjoy a peaceful, healthy, happy New Year!
