Fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism
By Rebecca McClen Novick. 5.5" x 8", 208 pages, paperback. The basic premise of Buddhism is that all suffering is the product of our own minds. Rebecca Novick's concise history of Buddhism and her explanations of the Four Noble Truths, Wheel of life, Karma, the path of the Bodhisattva, and the four schools help us understand Tibetan Buddhism as a religion or philosophy and more important, as a way of experiencing the world.
