about this item

Explore the three great teachings of the Buddha.

The First Turning of the Wheel: Insight into the nature of suffering—and the way out of it—from the four noble truths and the eightfold path

The Second Turning of the Wheel: Teachings on emptiness from the Heart Sutra and the Diamond Sutra

The Third Turning of the Wheel: Guidance for practitioners and teachings on awakened Buddha nature

In clear language, James William Coleman, professor of sociology at the California Polytechnic State University, guides us through the ancient sutras that preserve the Buddha’s message, illuminating their meaning for today’s world and tying the Buddha’s wisdom together for us. The book concludes with chapters from two great teachers, Reb Anderson from the Zen tradition and Lama Paldenfrom the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, on how to use meditation to bring the Buddha’s wisdom into our daily lives.
