Synopsis

Synopsis

Chögyam Trungpa’s in-depth exploration of the Four Noble Truths—the foundational Buddhist teaching about the origin of suffering and its cessation—emphasizes their profound relevance not just as an inspiration when we set out on the path, but at every other moment of our lives as well, showing how we can join view (intellectual understanding) of the teaching with practical application in order to interrupt suffering before it arises.

“Highly recommended. The Truth of Suffering is based on one of the most fundamental teachings of the Buddhist tradition, the Four Noble Truths. In the Tibetan context, they are occasionally presented in a somewhat dry, scholarly fashion. The presentation here is anything but. This is one of the best Dharma books I have read for some time.”—The Middle Way: Journal of The Buddhist Society (UK)


“This wonderful book presents the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism in a way that is completely fresh and original while at the same time never losing contact with the traditional sources.”—Pema Chödrön


“An invaluable resource for anyone seeking the truth. With disarming honesty and humor, Trungpa Rinpoche guides us through the Buddha’s teachings, bringing us face to face with our many misconceptions and our true potential.”—Sharon Salzberg

<p style="line-height: 150%;">“Trungpa Rinpoche’s mastery of the dharma reveals within this apparently simple teaching a ceaseless profundity of inestimable value for both beginners and advanced practitioners.”—John Daido Loori <p style="line-height: 150%;">“In this book we can hear Rinpoche’s uncontrived, genuine voice illuminating the fundamental teachings of Buddhism on the cycle of suffering and freedom from suffering—profoundly inspiring all of us.”—Tulku Thondup Rinpoche
