Originally given on 7/7/2020 at the Path of Sincerity Tuesday night Sangha, by David Sudar.
Continuing our series on the Eightfold Path, we’re now entering our fourth week on right view. We previously looked at karma, the noble truths, the notion of “fixed views,” and then this week we’ll explore the teachings on annica, commonly translated as impermanence, inconstancy or change.
In a very real way, insight into annica is the basis for the entire tradition, and has incredible liberating power. We’ll take it from conventional understandings of impermanence, such as the obvious noticing that everything comes and goes, all the way to the subtler insights into the inconstancy of the various components of self.
