Now, Here, the New Dharma Wheel Turns

These comprehensive and essential Buddhist teachings that are written in an easy-to-understand way will resolve the commonly misunderstood concepts taught in modern Buddhism such as 'egolessness' and 'void', as well as the true meaning of 'the middle way', 'nirvana' and 'Buddha-nature'.

Ryuho Okawa's clear-cut explanations of the core Buddhist teachings are what has been anticipated among authentic seekers of Truth, so look no farther.
