All authentic practices for the Buddha carry within them three crucial teachings called the Dharma Seals. These three teachings associated with Buddha are: impermanence, no self and nirvana. Just like all-important documents that are legal the mark or signature of the witness, all genuine techniques of this Buddha bear the mark among these three teachings.
That it doesn’t just mean that everything changes if we look into the first Dharma Seal, impermanence, we see. By looking at the character of things, we are able to observe that absolutely nothing continues to be the exact same even for two moments that are consecutive. Because absolutely nothing stays unchanged from moment to moment it consequently has no fixed identification or even a permanent self. Therefore into the training of impermanence we constantly begin to see the not enough a self that is unchanging. We call this “no self,” the 2nd Dharma Seal. For the reason that things will always changing and have now no self that freedom can be done.
The 3rd Dharma Seal is nirvana. This implies solidity and freedom, freedom from all some ideas and notions. The term “nirvana” literally means “the extinction of most ideas.” Searching profoundly into impermanence results in the finding of no self. The breakthrough of no self leads to nirvana. Nirvana could be the Kingdom of Jesus.
