Synopsis:
USA edition. An ideal beginner's introduction to Buddhism.

"A model of what a good book should be...authoritative and clear, logical and sober, this study is as comprehensive as it is masterly." I.B.Horner.

This book draws on the actual words spoken by the Buddha to give a lucid and accurate account of the fundamental principles of Buddhist doctrine. Richly supported by extracts from the ancient texts, Rahula gives clear and direct explanations of Buddhism's essential teachings, including: the Four Noble Truths, the Buddhist attitude of mind, the Noble Eightfold Path, meditation and mental development, and what the Buddha taught and the world today.

"By far the best introduction to Buddhism available" Professor R.F.Gombrich.
