The Four Seals of Dharma

  • Christchurch Buddhist Centre 43 Harrow Street Christchurch, Canterbury, 8011 New Zealand (map)

With Buddhist Teacher
Dungse Jampal Norbu

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.

About the Teacher: Dungse Jampal Norbu is known for his pragmatic, curious, and creative approach to traditional Buddhist teachings. Dungse-la is Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche’s son and Dharma Heir.
