Four Foundations of Buddhist Practice


Availability:: Currently Unavailable
Product Code: REF:KABOOK42


The four foundations of Buddhist practice are meditation on the precious human rebirth, impermanence, karma and the faults of samsara, and are general to all levels and sects. They can be contrasted to the four special foundations (ngondro) which are specific to Vajrayana Buddhism.

Buddhist practice is similar to building a house. Even though the house is impressive it may crumble under the weight of age and neglect if the foundations are not inspected and maintained. In this text, Thrangu Rinpoches`s commentary on the Four Foundations and Pema Karpo`s meditation instructions provide the means to secure the foundations of one`s practice. Regularly revisiting the four foundations is wise preparation for the basic meditation practices of Vajrayana Buddhism.

"The Four Foundations of Buddhist Practice have been crucial to my understanding of the Buddhist teachings. Nowhere have I found them presented with more clarity and wisdom than in this book by our beloved teacher Thrangu Rinpoche. I know that all who read this book will benefit profoundly."Pema Chodron.
