How to Solve Our Human Problems

The Four Noble Truths provide a deep insight into the true nature of human life, the problems we inevitably encounter and ways to overcome them. It is explained that the real source of our discontent lies within our deluded states of mind rather than in our external conditions. Through reducing and finally eliminating the inner causes of suffering, a lasting inner peace and happiness arise. Following a clear and concise presentation of these four universal truths, the author provides an in depth explanation of how to deal with anger, one of the most harmful delusions. He presents very practical methods to rid ourselves of this most painful mental state, through practising three types of patience. The book also includes sections on Understanding the Mind, Past and Future lives and What is Meditation?
