Will definitely re-read this one! Nathan Huffman rated it it was amazing Mar 29, Lucia Sandoval rated it it was ok May 18, Want to Read saving….
It is still an excellent book. Venerable Ajahn Sumedho is a sumecho mendicant monk of the Theravada tradition of Buddhism. It was tremendously helpful in teaching how to let go.
But Buddhism doesn’t offer those, and therefore nor does this excellent book. There seem to be several editions of this book floating around on GoodReads.
Good elaboration on the truths and the insights behind them! In my opinion, the coverage of the first two of the Noble Truths was very succinct and understandable. The first exposition of the Four Noble Truths was a discourse sutta called Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta — literally, ‘the discourse that sets the vehicle of the teaching in motion’.

Paperback74 pages. Getting a grip on the four Nobel truths is key to Buddhist practice and Ajahn Sumedho brings the topic to live with a rare depth of understanding. Nathvara K rated it it was amazing Ajahh 19, Rodrigo Miravalles rated it liked it Oct 19, Sumedho refuses to dismiss the 4 noble truths as primitive, and instead emphasises them as the core teachings of Buddhism.
Sep 17, Jadesword rated it it was amazing. Instead there are what seems to meta observations from the author, reflections on having lived it, but without tying those reflections to a context where they could be understood. I found this book to be very helpful – for the first half.
Extracts from this are quoted at the beginning of each chapter describing the Four Truths. However, I found the coverage of the 2 final Noble Truths to be a bit muddled and the writing a trutys more diffuse than in the first half.

Jan 31, Philosopherdog rated it it was amazing. I needed the insight. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. However, the theme of the Four Noble Truths recurs many times, for example in the quotation that appears at the beginning of the Introduction.
Let go of delusion.

May 26, Laura rated it it was amazing. The boble noble truths are considered the basics of Buddhism, and is often overlooked for more advanced theories. Learning to see things as impermanent, learning not to identify with your thoughts and feelings, and learning to see things just as they are.
