Four Foundations of Buddhist Practice E-book (Epub)
Ask a Question
In this book, Rinpoche discusses the four common foundations, which are the four thoughts to contemplate before beginning a spiritual practice.
The first foundation, precious human birth, explains in detail why practice is important. The second foundation, impermanence, teaches us to find something meaningful in life.
The most difficult to understand foundation, karma, is lucidly explained by Thrangu Rinpoche. Because of karma, we can determine if we will have a fortunate or unfortunate future. Then, after we have practiced, we must return to conventional reality (samsara) and so the fourth reminder is a review of the characteristics of samsara.
This book also includes Khenpo Karpo's excellent survey of the points of meditation and practice to round out the four foundations.
This e-book is in e-pub format and can be read on many ebook readers.
The paperback book is available on the Book section of this website.
