Publisher Comments:

In this provocative account, one of the most innovative Tibetan Buddhist monks examines humanitys deepest beliefs and assumptions in exploring the path to true Buddhism. Synthesizing the essence of Buddhism into four basic principles posed as questions, this valuable guide asks Are all things impermanent? Is it understood that all emotions carry pain and suffering and that no emotion is completely pleasurable? Are all phenomena illusory and empty? and Is it accepted that awakening is nothing more than liberation from ignorance? and argues that only true Buddhists answer these questions with an unmistakable “yes.”

 En este libro provocador, uno de los lamas budistas tibetanos más innovadores examina las creencias y presunciones más profundas del ser humano, explorando la senda del verdadero budismo. Sintetizando la esencia del budismo en cuatro principios básicos, este guía valioso pregunta ¿Son todas las cosas impermanentes? ¿Se comprende que todas las emociones conllevan dolor y sufrimiento y que ninguna emoción es totalmente placentera? ¿Son todos los fenómenos ilusorios y vacíos? y ¿Se acepta que el despertar no es otra cosa que la liberación de la ignorancia? y hace el argumento que solamente los verdaderos budistas responden a estas preguntas con un inequívoco “sí.”
