||History of Buddhism in India and Tibet - GPF book
|The history of Buddhism has been clearly recorded since the
time of the Buddha. In Tibetan there are volumes specifically
dedicated to the history of Buddhism in India and Tibet. There are
also volumes dedicated to the history of Buddhism at large: in India,
Tibet, Mongolia, China, Japan, Thailand, Burma and the rest.

||The Four Noble Truths - GPF book
|The Four Noble Truths are the truth of suffering, the truth of
the cause of suffering, the truth of the cessation of suffering and its
causes, and the truth of the path that achieves this.
Lord Buddha gave this teaching in Varanasi seven
weeks after his enlightenment, to his first five human disciples,
although other beings also came to participate.

The first seal: All composite things are impermanent,
The second seal: All that is tainted entails suffering,
The third seal: Realization is Peace
The fourth seal: All phenomena are devoid of independent entity.
