The Fours Seals of Dharma
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
We are delighted to announce that Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has agreed to share online his profound teachings based on The Four Seals of Dharma which will be offered at Gomde Germany-Austria for the benefit of the worldwide sangha.
For 2 or 3 hours each day, Rinpoche will guide us deeper and deeper into an exploration of the significance of these hallmarks of the Buddha’s core teachings, and explain how moment-by-moment they impact our everyday lives. The recordings will be posted on DharmaSun shortly after each live session.
The Fours Seals of Dharma (four days of teaching, one day of Ngakso practice) is open to all.
In this inspiring seminar, Rinpoche will convey the essence of Buddhist teachings in a clear, structured, and profound manner. The truth of impermanence, suffering, emptiness, and peace will be brought to life through Rinpoche's lucid guidance, allowing you not only to understand the concepts but also to apply them in your daily life.
The four special characteristics or "seals" distinguish a philosophical view or spiritual path as uniquely Buddhist. In short, they represent the "indisputable truth" of reality from a Buddhist perspective.
This Seminar offers a unique opportunity for students at all levels of study and practice—from beginners to advanced practitioners—to receive rare and precious teachings from one of the world’s most esteemed Buddhist masters. We therefore ask that you share the news of this unique opportunity with all those who might be interested in joining the teachings in-person or online.
Rinpoche will teach in Tibetan, and there will be translation into Chinese, English, German, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian.
The schedule provided below is in CET / GMT+2.
