Dalai Lama: Essence of Buddhism


Kunsang Dolma compiles excerpts from the Dalai Lama’s teachings at Varanasi in 2009. In this segment, he introduces ‘ Four Noble Truths’ and the four misapprehensions; or the four wrong thoughts: to apprehend what is impure as pure, to apprehend what is selfless as having a self or I, to apprehend what is miserable as happiness, and to apprehend what is impermanent as permanent.
