Sakya Four Noble Truths Teaching

Postby kirtu » Tue Aug 09, 2011 10:27 pm

The following outline is from Khenpo Kalsang's Four Noble Truths teaching on 14 July, 2002 at Sakya Phuntsok Ling:

Shakyamini Buddha's First Turing of the Wheel Day
1. Suffering must be understood
a. suffering of suffering
b. suffering of change
c. all pervasive suffering of conditioned existence
2. Abandoning the cause of all
a. karma
b. defilements
3. Cessation must be actualized
4. Relying on the path to tame the mind continuum
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
