Monthly Dharma Teaching #8 from Palpung Publications

The Four Noble Truths
by the 12th Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche

When Buddha manifested his first teaching, he taught the Four Noble Truths to five human disciples — five who are known as khor nga de zang-po (Group of five excellent followers of Buddha Shakyamuni)—in the holy place of Varanasi. This teaching is the very basic first step teaching in dharma, but it is also a foundation, because without knowing the Four Noble Truths then knowing the dharma, even very advanced dharma, will be a little bit difficult. It is like building a very nice house with no foundation. It will not make much sense. So the Four Noble Truths are very basic, and also very simple because it's almost common sense.
