The Dharma, Buddhism’s second jewel of refuge, is the teaching. It is enlightenment itself; reality itself. It is Nirvana, which is reality. So, in what Thurman describes as “a nice thing” about Buddhism is that reality is the goal. When the Buddha attained enlightenment, he brought to the Dharma the meaning that it holds you free from suffering.

The audio is too soft and lecturer speaks too fast rolling the words one on top of the another. Although his expertise is evident, he is difficult to follow. Closed captions would have helped immensely.
