This book provides lucid explanations of such fundamental concepts as the Three Treasures, the seals of the law, the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, the law of causation, and the threefold learning--teachings that all Buddhists honor, which bare the heart of this complicated and magnificently profound religion.
