Introduction The Self, the Four Truths, and their Sixteen Attributes -- Revolving in Cyclic Existence: the Truth of Duhkha -- True Origins Duhkha -- Afflictions, their arising, and their antidotes -- Afflictions and Karma, their seeds and latencies -- Karma, the Universe, and Evolution -- Revolving in Cyclic Existence: the Twelve Links of Dependent Origination --Dependent Origination: Cycling in Samsara -- The Determination to be Free -- Seeking Genuine Peace -- Freedom from Cyclic Existence -- The Mind and its Potential -- Buddha Nature -- Going Deeper into Buddha nature

In this new book from the Dalai Lama, the reader will discover the mind's infinitely vast potential, its buddha nature. Knowledge of buddha nature reveals and reconciles the paradox of how the mind can be the basis for both the duhkha of samsara (the unpurified mind) and the bliss and fulfillment of nirvana (the purified mind). To illustrate this, Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature first takes readers through Buddhist thought on the self, the four truths, and their sixteen attributes. It then explains afflictions--including how they arise and their antidotes--followed by an examination of karma and cyclic existence, and, finally, a deep and thorough elucidation of buddha nature. Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature shows us how to purify our minds and cultivate awakened qualities.
