    July 2019 Zazenkai Talk - "Building a House and the Four Seals"

    July 2019 Zazenkai Talk - "Building a House and the Four Seals"

    Rev. Sekishi's talk on Building a House and the Four Seals: the four characteristics (or "seals") are sometimes seen as a sort of "litmus test" to see if a teaching reflects true Buddha Dharma. But they can also be viewed as part of the core teachings of Buddhism:
    All compounded things are impermanent
    All emotions are Dukkha
    All phenomena are empty; they are without inherent (or "self") existence
    Nirvana is beyond extremes / concepts / description

Codowlsky Polopumus ,

So far, so good.

I've listened to the first 3 so far and I like it. Relaxing. Good introduction for me. It will be cool to see what's next.
