Let's improve Wiki's FNT article

Postby Stiphan » Thu Dec 23, 2010 9:00 pm

For such an important Buddhist topic, Wikipedia's current article about the Four Noble Truths is way too short. I think it should be improved. What do you think?

I think it needs to be re-written. It's too wordy, and a regular joe reading it would be confused by it.
It needs to be a wiki, quick and understandable.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

While you're fixing the text, how about dropping a couple of the 'external links'?
The Light of Asia is, surely, superseded as a reference. And the 'Feeling Buddha' is far enough from any mainstream interpretation to be seriously misleading to anyone who really needs the basics about the 4NT.
