The Dalai Lama


How does an ordinary person become a buddha? According to Buddhism, enlightenment is achieved by embracing the Four Noble Truths:

1. Life means suffering

2. The origin of suffering is attachment

3. The cessation of suffering is attainable

4. The path to the cessation of suffering




These six hours of video, filmed over two days in July 1996 at the Barbican Theater in London,  mark the first time His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has taught the Four Noble Truths in such detail in the West. Click here to purchase this video set from Amazon.com.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

  1. 迷你倉 Says:

    China has canceled or postponed several events meant to highlight its rapidly improving relations with Taiwan, apparently to show anger over the Dalai Lama’s visit to the island, Taiwan’s ruling party said.

    The Tibetan spiritual leader’s visit, aimed at comforting victims of last month’s deadly typhoon, has posed the most serious challenge to relations between the island and the mainland since President Ma Ying-jeou took office 15 months ago on a platform of ending 60 years of hostility.

    Taiwan’s ruling party said it sent an emissary to China last week to try to explain why Ma approved the visit.

    ”Beijing’s attitude toward this is important to us, so we tried to explain to them about Taiwan’s thinking,” Nationalist Party Deputy Secretary General Chang Rong-kung said.

    He did not say how China responded.

    China has canceled or postponed at least two planned visits to Taiwan, and nixed ceremonies meant to mark the expansion of direct air service, said Nationalist Party spokeswoman Chen Shu-rong. China had already said its delegation would not join Saturday’s opening ceremony for the Deaf Olympics in Taipei.

    An official with China Southern Airlines, however, said no ceremony had been planned for the direct flights, saying budgets are tight and such flights have become routine.

    China had warned that the Dalai Lama’s visit was ”bound to have a negative influence on the relations between the mainland and Taiwan” – a far harsher stance than its earlier comment that placed the blame for the visit on Taiwan’s pro-independence opposition rather than Ma.

    The opposition invited the Dalai Lama to visit and comfort victims of the typhoon, which killed 670 people. Ma later approved the visit but said he would not meet the spiritual leader.

    Sometimes it’s difficult to find a trace of common decency and humanity in politics. This is one of those times.
