Four Aspects of the Truth of Suffering and Cause of Suffering

Rimpoche talks about the last two aspects of the 1st Noble Truth, emptiness and selflessness, pointing out that emptiness is not nothing and that even zero is not nothing, but makes a difference to any number it is attached to. Selflessness in this context means that there is no self that exists independently.

Next Rimpoche talks about the four aspects of the Truth of Suffering. Refuting four misconceptions, in reality a variety of causes are responsible for our suffering.
