Seeing the truth of how things are
with Malcom Dow
This is the story of Bahiya, a man who was determined to receive the Buddha’s teaching. He travelled far to meet him.

It is one of Buddhism’s most profound and hard to grasp - the teaching of “no self.”
Tonight Malcom will unravel some of the mystery around the concept of emptiness as it relates to our concept of who we are. He will look at the process the Buddha outlined as to how to achieve it, and will shed some light on the answer to the question, ‘who are you?’
