Fundamentals of Buddhism: Four Lectures, by Nyanatiloka Mahathera (2005; 58pp./174KB) [PDF icon]
In this booklet one of the 20th century's great scholar-monks addresses some of the most fundamental but difficult issues in the correct understanding of the Buddha Dhamma. Bringing together his wide scholarship and practical experience with a gift for clear communication, Ven. Nyanatiloka explains the Four Noble Truths, Kamma and Rebirth, Dependent Origination, and Meditation. His treatment of these topics will be illuminating not only for newcomers, but also for longtime students of the Dhamma dissatisfied with the vague, wistful versions of the Teaching that have become so widespread today.
