Read full description of the books Las cuatro nobles verdades (Coleccion Autoayuda):The Four Noble Truths is a philosophical Buddhist novel written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama (I will call him the Dalai Lama because I am unaware of a better term of respect for this man).
Allow me to explain 4 reasons why I found this novel of particular interest and why you may as well:
1. It was surprisingly in line with philosophical studies
I found what I've spent years to build up and understand was easily referenced by the Dalai Lama. He referenced how everything had a cause and everything was connected through causation, a theory I hadn't heard since my intro to philosophy textbook had stated it.
2. He knows his audience and even his potential audience
Knowing your audience is a lot more difficult than it sounds. It's easy to parrot and try and tailor your product to an audience, of course, but to actually know what your audience probably thinks and believes? That's a talent that only a wise man may possess. The Dalai Lama knows not only this, but also mentions how radical atheists may find conform within Buddhism, and I found it interesting of his knowledge of potential as well as practical audience structures.
3. He makes his values of religion very clear
I believe in religious tolerance. I go to churches, mosques, synagogues and practically any other places I can find of religious thought and practice. I find most forefront is that most of the spiritual leaders you will talk to will not tell you their opinions as their own, and will instead use some quote of their holy book that seeps from their higher being. The Dalai Lama does not shy away to make clear his believe in spirits, a spiritual realms, and the loving kindness thought of within Buddhism (As well as many other things!).
4. He makes you think
Interestingly enough, the Dalai Lama has a intrinsic method of writing that gives a sense of clarity and vision into a mind surely spent in thought. I find that, besides the philosophy books that take me years to build intelligence in, the Dalai lama is the only one that can make me think and reflect on the reality of the world. I would hope, argue even, that anyone who reads this novel will surely receive the same effect that I have.
Overall, the Dalai Lama creates an interesting perspective and writing through his use and deployment of his thoughtful mind, his simplistic writing style, and his outlook on life. I think that this wonderful man gives us all something to look towards, inside or outside of Buddhism, and I look forward to reading more from such a beautiful mind.
Read information about the authorJetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso (born Lhamo Döndrub), the 14th Dalai Lama, is a practicing member of the Gelug School of Tibetan Buddhism and is influential as a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, the world's most famous Buddhist monk, and the leader of the exiled Tibetan government in India.
Tenzin Gyatso was the fifth of sixteen children born to a farming family. He was proclaimed the tulku (an Enlightened lama who has consciously decided to take rebirth) of the 13th Dalai Lama at the age of two.
On 17 November 1950, at the age of 15, he was enthroned as Tibet's ruler. Thus he became Tibet's most important political ruler just one month after the People's Republic of China's invasion of Tibet on 7 October 1950. In 1954, he went to Beijing to attempt peace talks with Mao Zedong and other leaders of the PRC. These talks ultimately failed.
After a failed uprising and the collapse of the Tibetan resistance movement in 1959, the Dalai Lama left for India, where he was active in establishing the Central Tibetan Administration (the Tibetan Government in Exile) and in seeking to preserve Tibetan culture and education among the thousands of refugees who accompanied him.
Tenzin Gyatso is a charismatic figure and noted public speaker. This Dalai Lama is the first to travel to the West. There, he has helped to spread Buddhism and to promote the concepts of universal responsibility, secular ethics, and religious harmony.
He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, honorary Canadian citizenship in 2006, and the United States Congressional Gold Medal on 17 October 2007.
