Dave Cuomo - The Five Skandas

“The skandas represent an attempt to exhaust the possible paths we might take in our search for a self, something permanent or separate in the undifferentiated flux of experience.” - Red Pine

Dave presents the five skandas - Buddha’s  classic breakdown of the components of ourselves that ultimately add up to no self at all. It’s a talk about emptiness but also a talk about these quirky little selves that make up that emptiness and how to work with them to just maybe forgive and appreciate ourselves a little easier. The sangha explores the questions of racism and gender, whether everything is meaningless, the joys of a morning cup of coffee and of course, a favorite episode of Star Trek.
