About the book
In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely. Our negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. Buddha’s popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths offers a clear and simple solution, guiding us to an oasis of peace within our hearts. How to solve our Human Problems is an indispensable guide for anyone who wishes to enjoy inner peace and contentment free from the daily pain of stress, frustration and other negative emotions.
