Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’s Teaching of

Four Noble Truths

Los Angeles
November 17-18, 2018

Tonpa Shenrab, the founder of Yungdrung Bon, understood that all sentient beings want to live a happy life. To bring this reality to all, he revealed the Four Noble Truths (Tibetan “Dhenpa Zhi”), with the express purpose of relieving the suffering of all sentient beings.

This ancient and fundamental teaching is from the Khorlo Dangpo, or First Wheel of Bon. In which Tonpa Shenrab has taught us to deeply understand the aspects of the suffering.

The Four Aspects
1. Understand the real face of suffering
2. Suffering is Impermanent
3. Essence of suffering is emptiness
4. Reality of suffering is selflessness

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will teach the Four Noble Truths according to Tonpa Shenrab:
1. The truth of suffering
2. The truth of the origin of suffering
3. The truth that we can end suffering
4. The truth that the end to suffering is the path of spiritual progress

We create our own suffering. There is a reason why we create our suffering, and there is a way we can change our lives and remove our suffering. Rinpoche will teach us what we need to see that we do not need to live in the suffering of cyclic existence (samsara). While we will always have struggles, when we know why we struggle and how to manage our struggles, we can lead our lives in a meaningful way with a clear direction and path.

Rinpoche will teach the simple but profound Four Noble Truths in the Bon tradition through his well-known and very effective style of lecture, question and answer exchange, and meditation. This format is designed to give students the tools for a clear understanding of the Four Noble Truths. This teaching can profoundly change your life.
