The truth of suffering and the way to liberation
Author: Chogyam Trungpa
This in-depth exploration of the Four Noble Truths, the foundation of Buddhist doctrine on the origin of suffering and its cessation, reveals the sophistication and complexity behind these seemingly simple teachings. Chögyam Trungpa shows us how to combine the "vision", that is the intellectual understanding, of the Buddha's teachings with the practical application in everyday life, so as to prevent suffering even before it occurs. Reading these pages we are guided to an inner awakening that allows us to see a reality different from the one in which we are immersed, freeing us from its conditioning and from emotions and desires that do not really belong to us. "This wonderful book presents the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism with a completely new freshness and originality, without however losing contact with traditional sources. ”- Pema Chödrön“ An immeasurable resource for anyone in search of truth. With a disarming honesty and sense of humor, Trungpa Rinpoche guides us through the teachings of the Buddha, confronting us with our many misconceptions and our true potential. ”- Sharon Salzberg.
