As Buddhism developed and spread throughout the world, many distinct lineages and philosophical schools emerged. While the various Buddhist traditions differ widely in their prayers and practices, they are all unified by a belief in the “Four Seals or Characteristics of Dharma”:
  1. Impermanence
  2. Emotions resulting in pain/suffering
  3. Emptiness or Selflessness
  4. Enlightenment that is beyond concepts
In this public talk, Khenpo Karten Rinpoche, a very caring and compassionate teacher in the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, will give a clear and accessible teaching on the meaning of the Four Seals and how to put an understanding of them into daily practice.

We invite you to take advantage of this special opportunity. Whether you are a Buddhist, curious about Buddhism, or have an interest in comparative religions, this program will be very insightful and beneficial.

Khenpo Karten Rinpoche was born in Nangchen, East Tibet, and received a traditional monastic education at several of Asia’s greatest Buddhist training centers. He suffered many hardships with the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Upon his escape to India, Rinpoche was subsequently authorized by the Dalai Lama to come to the West and teach the Dharma. Rinpoche has groups of students in Europe, Asia, and North America, and currently is the Spiritual Director at the Manjushri Dharma Center in Pacific Grove, CA.

Suggested donation: $20

All are welcome to attend regardless of ability to make a donation.
