Description: Highlighting excerpts from two books, Why Buddhism is True, by Robert Wright and Narcissus and Goldmund, by Hermann Hesse, this talk focuses on three topics: suffering, beauty, and the Dharma. When we expose and examine our pain and the suffering caused by wanting things to be different than they are, it becomes easier to allow and accept it— just as it is. Then, we can truly discover the Dharma, and the experience of beauty is a recognized hallmark of it.
