The Four Seals

4 HIDDEN TRUTHS - THE 4 SEALS

Buddha Shakyamuni taught four main truths (the four seals) that require deep wisdom to understand and realize:

  1. All functioning things are impermanent, changing moment by moment.

  2. Everything in this impure world is created out of confusion and therefore conducive to suffering.

  3. All phenomena are empty of inherent or independent existence.

  4. Only permanent freedom from delusions (Nirvana) is real peace.
