Buddhists Teachings are identified by having four characteristic or seals that distinguish them from other religious or philosophical teachings. The Four Seals are:  1) All compounded phenomena are impermanent;

2) All contaminated phenomena are unsatisfactory/ have the nature of suffering;

3) All phenomena are empty/devoid of self and

4) Nirvana is peace. 

During this weekend intensive Geshe-la will explain in depth the meaning of the Four Seals and how they are interpreted and expressed by various schools of Buddhism.  He will also discuss how teachings on the four seals are related to various meditation and mind training practices.  This is an excellent topic for those new to Buddhism in giving an explanation of core concepts and practices within all schools of Buddhism.  It is also an excellent teaching for more experienced students in providing a richer understanding of the differences in various schools of Tibetan Buddhism philosophy on these topics
