Presented by The SF Young Meditators
All are welcome to attend!

The Path of Buddhist philosophy and practice is a personal journey of experience and reflection. Even from the very beginning a meditator can experience the benefits and freedom of their practice. But spiritual vagueness is a common issue, and the white noise of a rushed materialistic life can get in the way of clarity. The Four Seals are the cornerstones of the Buddhist path where we can return to look for guidance and challenge stagnant ideas in order to take our path forward in a grounded and intelligent way.

Join Dungse Jampal for an exploration of the Four Seals and extended discussion.

Dungse Jampal Norbu is the son and dharma heir of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. Rinpoche is the founder of Mangala Shri Bhuti and a lineage holder of the Dzogchen Longchen Nyingtik tradition. When Dungse Jampal was still an infant, Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche's root teacher, instructed Kongtrul Rinpoche to train Dungse la to uphold and continue Kongtrul Rinpoche’s lineage. With life-long guidance from Kongtrul Rinpoche, particularly in traditional Buddhist shedra studies in India and the US, Dungse-la now teaches widely as well as engages in an annual 100-day long retreat at Longchen Jigme Samten Ling.

Dungse Jampal has lived and traveled extensively in Asia, but spent much of his youth in Colorado. If you were to ask Dungse la how long he has been studying the Buddhist path, he would say, “Since I was born.” Under his father’s wing he has received many teachings and transmissions, sometimes while the two were walking in the mountains of Crestone. Dungse la's anecdotal style and first-hand curiosity about how Buddhism relates to actual experience imbue his teaching with a fresh perspective, and reveal a natural wisdom and humor.
