The Four Seals are four special insights into reality that enable us to experience the liberating wisdom of Mahamudra, the true nature of things.
In King of Concentration Sutra Buddha says:
The nature of all phenomena is the great seal.
Here, nature refers to the ultimate nature of all phenomena, which is emptiness, or lack of inherent existence. This emptiness is called the ‘great seal’ because phenomena never move from the state of lacking inherent existence.
In general all Buddhists assert four views:
- All products are impermanent
- All contaminated things are the nature of suffering
- All phenomena are selfless
- Only nirvana is peace
Because these views are irrefutable, they are called the ‘four seals’.
In this course, we will explore profound topics such as impermanence, the nature of the mind, the source of suffering and the truth of ultimate reality, emptiness. Through teachings and guided meditations we will gain insight into the true nature of reality and experience the peace and freedom that comes from wisdom
