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

“All beings are Buddhas, but obscured by incidental stains. When those have been removed, there is Buddhahood.”
