The Four Noble Truths : a guide for everyday life by Thubten Zopa( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Buddha's profound teachings on the four noble truths are illuminated by a Tibetan master simply and directly, so that readers gain an immediate and personal understanding of the causes and conditions that give rise to suffering as well as the spiritual life as the path to liberation. The Four Noble Truths begins with an excellent elucidation of the nature of the mind and its role in creating the happiness we all seek. Lama Zopa Rinpoche then turns to an in-depth analysis of the four truths. The first truth is that we are suffering because we are in cyclic existence, or samsara, the beginningless cycle of death and rebirth characterized by three types of suffering: the suffering of suffering, the suffering of change, and pervasive compounding suffering. These are not inflicted on us without cause, nor do they come from others. The second truth tells us that there is a cause for all this suffering{u2014}the delusions and karma that arise from the ignorance that fails to see the way in which things exist. Because there is a cause and because we can develop the wisdom realizing emptiness, the antidote to ignorance, we are able to actualize the third truth, the cessation of suffering. How we do that is explained in the fourth truth, the path to the cessation of suffering."--Back cover
The door to satisfaction : the heart advice of a Tibetan Buddhist master by Thubten Zopa( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Door to Satisfaction Lama Zopa Rinpoche reveals a text he discovered in a cave in the Himalayas that captures the essential point of Buddhist training. Rinpoche says, "Only when I read this text did I come to know what the practice of Dharma really means." Without proper motivation, it does not matter what we do. Whether reciting prayers, meditating, or enduring great hardships, if our actions are devoid of good intention they will not become Dharma practice. Proper motivation transcends our ordinary, ephemeral desires and ultimately seeks the happiness of all living beings. "In your life," says Rinpoche, "there is nothing to do other than to work for others, to cherish others. There is nothing more important in your life than this." This powerful, simple message applies to Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike--we all have the power to unlock our greatest potential.

Happiness and suffering are dependent upon your mind, upon your interpretation. They do not come from outside, from others.

How to be happy by Thubten Zopa( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in Chinese and English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In fresh and inviting language, making frequent use of strikingly clear diagrams and illustrations, Unlearning the Basics challenges many our commonsense understandings -- of who we are, of what the mind is, of the relationship of the self to the world. The book also offers a new way of seeing that enables to us live more serenely, more compassionately, and more free from the slings and arrows of our busy lives. Grounded in the Buddhist tradition yet completely free from the formulas of traditional, tired presentations, this book is written in an informal style designed to maintain the reader's attention. The author examines concepts of love and grasping, as well as what happens when the need for love meets "the great unfixables." Also covered are how impermanence, vulnerability, and pain feed the "evolution of character," personal agency, "wise resistances," and the necessity of experiential training in new ways of using the mind -- and of returning to our true home and finding new ways to flourish
