He will explain how we can permanently solve all our suffering and problems – our unpleasant feelings – and accomplish the real meaning of our human life through receiving Buddha's teachings. Each week you will receive practical advice that you can put into practice immediately. Over time, these new understandings will not only enrich our life, but have life changing results.
