Proving the Buddha's Four Noble Truths is always an easy task, but has recently been abundantly evident with the First Truth's principal that Life is Suffering, demonstrated through the devastating floods that have fallen on Queenslanders.
Whether it is in the deaths of those lost, the frantic concern for those still missing, or the loss of some, or all, of one's personal possessions, homes, livelihood, friends, loved ones and neighbours. Even more so is the unfathomable loss of other sentient life - livestock, pets, animals, pets, and so many more.
Around 200 people joined Ven. Ajahn Brahm, returning to deliver yet another profound talk on "Putting Meaning Into Life".
On Wednesday September 22 at the Griffith University's Multi-Faith Centre, Nathan Campus we all received a profound talk and shared in an active question and answer session that lasted more than one-hour.

The fascinating journey that Queensland and Buddhism share is just another, until now, unsung tale that has helped shape and mould this wonderful state and country.
Shakyamuni Buddha is credited with bringing this philosophy to our awareness more than 2550 years ago and Buddhism is recognised as one of the very first belief systems that intentionally sent their clergy (monks) to travel among foreign people and countries to share the Buddha’s teachings. Such journeys have been recorded dating back to around 300 BCE, taking those teachings from the now north-western area of India to Korea and Japan in the north, Indonesia to the east, Sri Lanka in the south and Afghanistan to the west. From the 1800’s it reached the societies of the North and South America, Europe and Australia.
