Topic: Four Seals of Dharma

The path of Buddhist philosophy and practice is a personal journey of experience and reflection. From the very beginning, meditation practice can bring a sense of physical release and mental freedom. But the white noise of our rushed and materialistic lives can get in the way of understanding. The Four Seals encapsulates the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and is regarded as the foundation of Buddhist philosophy. In four simple but profound lines, it reveals the progressive logic of the Buddhist view, from an analysis of suffering to nirvana. Integrating this view into our personal experience is what makes the Buddhist path come alive.

Description

The path of Buddhist philosophy and practice is a personal journey of experience and reflection. From the very beginning, meditation practice can bring a sense of physical release and mental freedom. But the white noise of our rushed and materialistic lives can get in the way of understanding. The Four Seals encapsulates the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and is regarded as the foundation of Buddhist philosophy. In four simple but profound lines, it reveals the progressive logic of the Buddhist view, from an analysis of suffering to nirvana. Integrating this view into our personal experience is what makes the Buddhist path come alive.

The Four Seals are four observations about the phenomenal world and our experience of it that lay the foundation for the path toward liberation. They are:

• All compounded things are impermanent


• All emotions are suffering


• All phenomena are without inherent existence, in other words, empty of self-nature


• Nirvana is beyond words or concepts
