Why are we in this life? Why do we have to suffer? The Buddha gave his own unique answer to these questions. He taught that the cause of suffering is within man, namely his own faults & defilements, & not in the external situation. He explained that only profound knowledge of his own mind & of all phenomena of his life can lead to the end of suffering. Nina Van Gorkom expounds the basic principles of Buddhism for those who have no previous knowledge of experience of this way of life. The four noble truths - Suffering, the Origin of Suffering, the Cessation of Suffering - are explained as a philosophy & a practical guide which can be followed in today's world. Available through Atrium Distributors.Van Gorkom, Nina is the author of 'Buddha's Path An Introduction to Theravada Buddhism' with ISBN 9781897633120 and ISBN 1897633122.
