“Impermanence” is a core teaching in Buddhism. In this talk, Phramaha Rahat will explain why it is important to realize and remember the impermanence of one’s own life and how this realization leads to happiness and peace. Phramaha Rahat is an experienced teacher and has been a senior Buddhist monk for 15 years.

The talk will be followed by an extended Q&A session, in which you are free to ask any question from Phramaha Rahat. You are welcome to bring your questions related to Buddhism, meditation, difficulties in life or any other problem to find out answers through Buddhist teachings.
