During the first turning of the wheel of Dharma, Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Four Noble Truths: the truth of suffering, the cause of suffering, the cessation of suffering and the path to the cessation of suffering. These four truths represent the core-foundational teaching in Buddhism. 

In brief, the truth of suffering refers to our experience of afflictive emotions and the actions we take based on these afflictive emotions.  The cause of this suffering arises from our misconception of things as appearing to exist independently compared to how they exist in reality.   The cessation of suffering occurs when we overcome this misconception through the development of wisdom that understands and sees the reality of how things exist.  This wisdom is cultivated through various practices that comprise the path. 

During this weekend intensive, Geshe-la will discuss each of the Four Noble Truths in detail and how they apply to our lives.  This weekend intensive is ideal for persons new to Buddhism as it will give a sound foundation for further study.  This teaching will also provide deeper understanding of the Four Noble Truths for those who have been studying Buddhism for some time.


My name is Jamyang Dakpa. I was born in 1976 and at the age of eleven, I become monk and started my primary education at our local monastery. In 1995, at age of nineteen I got admission at Sera Jhe Monastery in South India, where I have studied rigorously for sixteen years on the five major treatises of Buddhism and had received either first division in my every given examination.

In 2011, I have started the Great Geluk Examination where I had received first position in both Karam (i.e., highest proficiency in sacred literature) and Lopon (Master Degree) exams among the monks of three great monasteries of the Gelukpa sect, as well as monks from Tashi Lhunpo and Ratoe monasteries. On my final year, I took part in the examination of research and writing on Madhyamika subject and I got first position of the first division with the distinguished title of Lharam Nga-ki Wangchuk.

In 2017, I have received my Geshe Lharmapa degree (traditional degree equivalent to PhD in Buddhism). In 2018, I did my study on Buddhist trantric at Gyutoe Tantric University and received first position with Ngakram degree. Right after my graduation I have been teaching at Namgyal Monastery, in Dharamshala India.
