The Four Noble Truths And The Eightfold Path

This is the extended edition including

* an extensive annotation of more than 10.000 words about the history and basics of Buddhism

In this book Paul Carus compiles the fundamental teachings of the Buddha: the four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, and Buddha's sermons and advice to his disciples. In this reading, Buddha explains how nirvana can result from the discipline of the Noble Eightfold Path.
