    One thought on “The Four Noble Truths”

    1. Well Not really sure what to say about this book that I did not already say within my progress updates.I feel like this is a very complicated religion once you get into all the the different aspects of things. But maybe it isn't that complicated-maybe it sounded so complicated because with the way this book was written, it was very repetitive and drawn out and did not explain it very well. Perhaps it would have sounded better pre-translation. Reading this book was not as painful as the last book [...]

    2. Sometimes found that it didn't flow as easily as I would have liked (more text book then flowing), but it is a complicated study, so that could be why. I found that along with the Buddhism course I was taking it helped.

    3. È un libro dalle argomentazioni chiarissime. Impossibile mal interpretarlo. Si può essere o no d'accordo, ma questo è un fatto soggettivo. È necessario studiarlo, perché è impossibile memorizzarne i concetti con solo due o tre letture. È quello che intendo fare.

    4. Not translated well, glosses entirely over the Third Noble Truth Thinking that cessation was what the author was attempting to do at that point.
