Patan Palace

Visit to Patan Palace and Buddhist Teachings

In this video we visit the palace buildings in Patan. We discuss Buddhist philosophy and look at the information on the wall about Buddhist beliefs.

It is believed that human cravings for one thing or another, money, power, sex etc are the cause of all suffering.

If you don’t attach great importance to things you don’t suffer if deprived of them.

Be more laid back seems to be the message.

Early in his life the Buddha thought he had to live very poor to be happy but he realised that extreme poverty and extreme wealth can both be problematic for human happiness. It is believed modest means with just a comfortable life is the best.
