The Four Noble Truths
with Geshe Ngawang Tharchin
The first teaching given by the Buddha presented four truths; truths which describe our ordinary experience and which point to a means of becoming free of every kind of problem and dissatisfaction, including the suffering of birth, old age, sickness and death.
These four truths, truths observed by the realized mind, are the central teachings of the Buddhist tradition. Through understanding these four truths, one has a foundation for understanding all of Buddhist philosophy and practice.
