Part of a series of talks given during a two day retreat at the Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore based on The Foundation of Buddhist Practice, the second volume in The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series.

  • The second seal: All polluted phenomena are unsatisfactory by nature
  • Dukhkha: The unstatisfactoriness of our circumstances
  • How duhkha evolves
  • How we create our future
  • Seals three and four—when we realize emptiness we experience nirvana
  • Questions
    • Why is the misapprehension of reality so pervasive?
    • If the mind perceives reality will it still need the body?
    • Do bodhisattvas experience pain and suffering?
    • How can lay people with busy lives progress on the path?
    • Will our knowledge in this life go to the next life?
