This ”Introduction to Buddhism” is intended for beginners interested in the subject. The first half is an excerpt from my book ”My Land and My People”. The section incorporated is the appendix entitled ”An Outline of Buddhism in Tibet”. Concise notes expounding the significance of the Refuge, the Law of Karma and its fruits, Trishiksha and Bodhichitta have been added.
In order to spread the holy Dharma, and also to help those who seek the way of spiritual development, I hope to publish more of such books and booklets from time to time.
May those who seek the Path of Peace find it, and happiness.
