The first stage of meditation is to stop distractions and make our mind clearer and more lucid. More accurately translated as the "four realities for aryas"(those who have gained direct realization of nirvana), these are the four topics the Buddha taught when he first turned the Wheel of Dharma to his five close disciples in Sarnath, shortly after his enlightenment.


These topics are the realities of suffering, of the source of suffering, of the cessation of suffering at its source, and the path to that cessation. During this weeklong retreat, Alan Wallace explains how these four realities are understood from the perspective of the Shravakayana (which corresponds closely to the Buddha's teachings as preserved in the Pali Canon (the basis of Theravada Buddhism), the Mahayana (with its emphasis on the bodhisattva way of life culminating in the perfection of wisdom), and the Vajrayana, or Buddhist tantra, culminating in the Great Perfection, or Dzogchen.
