The Four Noble Truths
Paperback - English

Life involves suffering. Desire is the source of our suffering. There is a way to put an end to our desire. The way out of desire is to live one's life according to eight basic principles. These four noble truths were the subject of the Buddha's first sermon and form the core of Buddhist teaching. The Dalai Lama describes these unique teachings here as he presented them to the West for the first time in 1997. ...

This book contains the essential guide to some of the central Buddhist teachings based on the recent UK lectures by his holiness.

This volume includes: -

'The Four Noble truths', one of the most central tenets of Tibetan Buddhism.

The need to balance spiritual and material values.

'Compassion, the Basis for Human Happiness'

...

In July 1996, for the first time in the West, his Holiness the Dalai Lama gave two exclusive days of teaching in London on 'The Four Noble Truths' - the heart of the Buddhist's teachings.

'The Four Noble Truths' - the truth of suffering, the truth of the origin of suffering, the truth of the cessation of suffering and the truth of the path leading to this cessation - was the first sermon the Buddha gave after he was enlightened. As well as elucidating these teachings, His Holiness the Dalai Lama also explains the relative and absolute compassion.

-Whenever I have been given the opportunity to introduce Buddhism I always make it a point to explain Buddhism in terms of two principles. One is the development of a philosophical viewpoint based on the understanding of the interdependent nature of reality. And the second principle is that of non-violence which is the actual action of a Buddhist practitioner and which derives from that view of the interdependent nature of reality.- HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
