The Four Seals encapsulates the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and is regarded as the foundation of Buddhist philosophy. In four simple but profound lines, it reveals the progressive logic of the Buddhist view, from an analysis of suffering to nirvana. Integrating this view into our personal experience is what makes the Buddhist path come alive.
Dungse Jampal Norbu is the son and dharma heir of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. Rinpoche is the founder of Mangala Shri Bhuti and a lineage holder of the Dzogchen Longchen Nyingtik tradition. With life-long guidance from Kongtrul Rinpoche, particularly in traditional Buddhist shedra studies in India and the US, Dungse-la now teaches widely as well as engages in an annual 100-day long retreat at Longchen Jigme Samten Ling.
Dungse la's anecdotal style and first-hand curiosity about how Buddhism relates to actual experience imbue his teaching with a fresh perspective, and reveal a natural wisdom and humour.
