The Kalachakra Path offers a profound method for actualising your greatest potential and contributing to greater peace and harmony within this world. For the first time ever, this extraordinary path is revealed in a step-by-step manner, allowing students to gradually approach this uniquely comprehensive system in a structured and methodical way. Drawing on more than 30 years of intensive. Indestructible Truth is one of the most thorough introductions to the Tibetan Buddhist world view ever published; at the same time it is also one of the most accessible. The author presents complex and sophisticated teachings and practices in nontechnical language, using engaging stories and personal anecdotes to illustrate his points/5(28).

  The Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path are fundamental teachings in Buddhism. They are considered equally important among all the Buddhist schools and are central to .   However, unlike contemporary philosophical positivism, Buddhism is forced to operate in a "closed circle" of confusion through neglect of the basic questions of truth, logic, and language. It is clear from the Four Noble Truths that "the supreme concern of the Buddha was not truth but salvation.".

However, if you’re completely new to Buddhism, then you might want to read the book recommended above, What The Buddha Taught by Walpola Rahula, before reading this one, as What The Buddha Taught reads more like a book than a compilation of sutras, and is therefore much easier to read and follow. I suggest taking a look at the first few pages.   The Noble Eightfold Path. The Noble Eigthfold Path is the fourth of the Four Noble Truths, and offers eight factors for us to cultivate in order to liberate ourselves from suffering, or achieve enlightenment. Although they are often listed in order, they are not to be cultivated in a linear fashion. Rather, we cultivate them together, especially as many are connected to other factors.
