What Is Faith?
A Dharma talk with Ven. Thubten Chodron
Tibetan Buddhist Center Singapore
December 26, 10 am Singapore Time / December 25, 6 pm Pacific Time
What does it mean to have confidence or trust in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha? How does this relate to the Buddha’s own advice not to accept his teachings at face value, but to check for ourselves if they are true before believing them?
In this talk, Venerable Thubten Chodron explores the meaning of faith in Buddhism and how to cultivate it in a realistic and beneficial way that can nourish and sustain our spiritual practice.
