In this short lecture delivered by professor Henry Shiu, we will explore the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Noble Path
Henry Shiu is the inaugural Shi Wu De professor in Chinese Buddhist Studies at Emmanuel College of Victoria University, University of Toronto. His area of research specialization lies in the theory of the tatha gatagarbha or Buddha nature, and he has also focused his studies on Mahayana Buddhism in India, China, and Tibet, particularly on the historical and doctrinal development of the Madhyamaka and Yogacara traditions. Other research interests include contemporary engaged Buddhist movements, Buddhist chaplaincy, Buddhism in Canada, and Western classical music.
In this short lecture, we will explore how "mindfulness" (sati) is understood in the Buddhist scriptures, the Buddhist approach to mindfulness practice, and the spiritual goals of this spiritual contemplation.
