Dharma Talk — “The Four Seals” or “What really makes you a Buddhist”

Everything that is compounded is impermanent.
All emotions are pain.
Nothing has inherent existence.
Nirvana is peace.

These four axioms is what the Buddhist view is about. Having the right view is the ground of all practices. Without the view, there is no path, and hence no result. Therefore the view is the first and foremost topic we have to understand.
