The Six States of Existence

This week’s talk by Lama Kathy Wesley is entitled: “The Six States of Existence.” According to the teachings of the Buddha we are all evolving, every moment of our lives. We – and other sentient beings (called “dro wa” in Tibetan) are always in motion, trying to find happiness and be free of suffering. This talk describes the classic Buddhist teaching on the Six States of Existence, and how meditation helps us evolve from lower states of suffering to self-aware states of awakening.
