Lama Laia will give a Dharma talk on the “Four Seals” according to the teachings of the Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches.What distinguishes the Dharma as such is the presence of ‰ÛÏfour seals‰ or ‰ÛÏfour marks‰ [bka‰۪ rtags kyi phyag rgya bzhi] that separate worldly teachings from transcendent ones. These are often stated as follows: (1) ‰ÛÏall compounded things are impermanent,‰ (2) ‰ÛÏall afflictive emotions are of the nature of suffering,‰ (3) ‰ÛÏall phenomena are empty and devoid of a self-identity,‰ and (4) ‰ÛÏnirvana is peace‰ or ‰ÛÏnirvana is beyond extremes.‰
