    1. The Four Noble Truths is a philosophical Buddhist novel written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama (I will call him the Dalai Lama because I am unaware of a better term of respect for this man). Allow me to explain 4 reasons why I found this novel of particular interest and why you may as well:1. It was surprisingly in line with philosophical studiesI found what I've spent years to build up and understand was easily referenced by the Dalai Lama. He referenced how everything had a cause and everythin [...]

    2. Very good introduction starting with the 2 basic principles of 1. Interdependent nature of reality and 2. non-violence. Followed by taking refuge and generating bodhichitta. Brief explanations of dependent origination and the 2 truths. All that to set the grounds for understanding the 4 noble truths.One of the best introductions I have read. Would recommend it as a starter and for ongoing contemplation. The rest is just as good. Clear, concise, shows where to focus attention.One of my top 10 Bud [...]

    3. Mind Opening GuidanceAs I first began reading, :-/ came across very intellectually and I considered it possibly beyond my mental scope. I persisted and as the reading progressed I became more aware of how well it all tied in together. :/ authored an excellent book on guidance and instruction.

    4. Clearly written and wonderful.However: why is it that even the most clear, down-to-earth, I-speak-to-you-without-jargon, books on Buddhism, veer directly into lists of rules, concepts-within-concepts, etc?I'd love to see a beginner's-mind approach, a Buddhism-for-dummies. Maybe there are lots of these, but I've never really seen one. One that starts with the basic ideas (life is suffering, attachments cause illusions, illusions are what we build our lives around --> cessation of suffering com [...]

    5. His holiness is always fun to listen to. This is a translated, edited, and organized account of a set of lectures done by the Dalai Lama in London in '96 I believe? I'm too lazy to grab the book or Google it, so sorry if that's inaccurate. While his holiness is sometimes difficult to follow for some, this is absolutely a great place to start if one desires a playful yet thorough and concise introduction to Buddhism as-the-Dalai-Lama sees it. Selfless compassion is the name of his game, and he's [...]

    6. For the Dalai Lama the two basic principles of Buddhism are the interdependent nature of reality, and the principle of non-violence. The interdependence of things is a tenet from which many other Buddhist constructs (including the Four Noble Truths) can be derived.The Dalai Lama introduces each of the Four Noble Truths, drawing on examples both from Buddhist scripture and ordinary experience to support the accuracy of Buddhist philosphy. Buddhism is presented as an antidote to the surfeit of ill [...]

    7. Not really my cup of tea. Neviem, či je to tým, že to bolo preložené do češtiny, ale dve tretiny knihy som skôr trpela ako čokoľvek iné. Neviem, či tento dalajlama nevie prednášať alebo mal len nedostatok času, no celá prednáška bola chaotická a povedala/vysvetlila veľmi málo. (Myslím, že problém bol skôr časový, pretože druhá prednáška, ktorá bola priložená ako príloha, bola výstižná, k veci a veľmi pekná - preto tri hviezdičky namiesto dvoch.)

    8. Clear, and understandable. Short and to the point. A very useful and enlightening book.I really don't know what else to say about this. It is what it is. It doean't really need a review: if you know what it is, you don't need me to tell you. If you DON'T know what it is then it probably doesn't matter what I write.Recommended. If you're into that sort of thing.

    9. Clear, concise, compassionate teaching on the Four Noble Truths.I think this is out of print, but worth picking up if you find it in a used book store.

    10. Wow, this book really got me thinking differently. It is a great introduction to a completely different way of thinking about life, pain, death, and how I live. Thanks to a friend for recommending!

    11. I liked how it shows the reader the basis or the path to start Buddhism or whatever religion you choose

    12. Contains great tales to demonstrate the subject but there are also parts that are hard to comprehend for a Westerner.

    13. This is an excellent, elegant, succinct summary of the basic tenets of Buddhism--straight from the mouth of someone who ought to know.
