The Four Seals of Dharma

The Path of Buddhist philosophy and practice is a personal journey of experience and reflection. Even from the very beginning a meditator can experience the benefits and freedom of their practice. But spiritual vagueness is a common issue, and the white noise of a rushed materialistic life can get in the way of clarity. The Four Seals are the cornerstones of the Buddhist path where we can return to look for guidance and challenge stagnant ideas in order to take our path forward in a grounded and intelligent way.

Join Dungse Jampal for an exploration of the Four Seals and extended discussion.

Living in a materialistic age, ideologies are taken to be real positions in opposition to other real positions, and this breeds colliding truths. In such an environment, dharma reminds us that we are living, breathing beings, and our perceptions of the world are equally fluid, rather than fixed and static. There will never be one truth. However, compassion, and the tender heart at its core, give us flexibility in our thoughts and emotions. From that subtle perspective inside, we can contribute to the world in a way that doesn’t foment more divisiveness. 

Dungse Jampal will explore the relevance of the bodhisattva path to the complex social and political environment of today in terms of how we can first and foremost work with our own reactions, and then develop an appropriate, wise and compassionate response.
