Analysis of Truths

Our first dhamma discussion for this year started with the topic “The Analysis of Truths” on 19 February 2019 (Tuesday night) at our centre. The sutta referenced was Saccavibhanga Sutta (MN 141).

In our discussion on Truth, we questioned ourselves on our own understanding of Truth, what it is, and how is it similar or different from reality? And what is reality, anyway? How does the Mind come into play in all these?

After all, as Buddhists, we are supposed to have faith in the Triple Gems – the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha. Dhamma, as taught by the Buddha, is a teaching on Truth. Surely, as truth seekers, we must familiarise ourselves with Truth.

The diagram below is a summary of what came out of our discussion.
