In the summer of 1996 the Dalai Lama gave four lectures on suffering and overcoming it, which he entitled "The Four Noble Truths." Each of these lessons begins with a short introduction by Dr. Robert Thurman of Columbia University. Although he speaks English well, the Dalai Lama speaks, for the most part, through an interpreter. The interpreter speaks English very well and is easy to understand. However, this type of presentation is inherently dry, and this recording isn't an exception. M.T.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
The four noble truths are these: life involves suffering; desire is the source of our suffering; there is a way to put an end to our desire; the way out of desire is to live one's life according to eight basic principles.
