The Four Seals of Buddhism
A Five Week Class Series with Scott Tusa (Tenzin Namsel)
Tuesdays beginning March 14th
All compounded things are impermanent, all emotions are painful, all phenomena are empty of self-existence, and nirvana is beyond extremes. These are the Four Seals of Buddhism. In general, these four seals, or characteristics are what distinguish Buddhism from the infinite ways we can view our internal and external worlds. In practice, these ‘seals,’ become a path to work with our everyday perceptions, thoughts, and emotions, bringing greater efficacy in overcoming mental and emotional habits that cause us unnecessary suffering. In this series, we will explore these four seals together through periods of teaching, meditation, and discussion.
Scott Tusa (Tenzin Namsel) is a Buddhist teacher and musician. He teaches Buddhism and meditation classes, workshops, and retreats nationally and supports Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s Pundarika Sangha as a practice advisor. He trained as a Buddhist monastic in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for nine years, and has developed his Buddhist studies and practice under an array of well-respected Tibetan Buddhist masters and in a variety of solitary meditation retreats since his early twenties.
Open to all.
Cost: $20 per class or $90 if paid in advance. There will be an opportunity to offer dana to the teacher at each class (teachers receive a portion of the reg fee and are supported by dana). Some scholarships and work-study are available. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
