Publisher's Summary

Buddhism has been around for thousands of years, but it was not until recently that people all over the world have started to gain interest in it once more. Perhaps, it is because they are drawn to the teachings of Buddhism that center on themes, such as living life in moderation, letting go of desires, and being compassionate towards others. The physical and mental benefits gained from such Buddhist practices as meditation, yoga and mindfulness may have also contributed to its popularity.
Yet, as people slowly begin to introduce Buddhist principles into their lifestyle, many of their questions regarding this ancient way of life still need simple answers.
If you are someone who wants to know more about Buddhism and how you can incorporate its principles into your daily life, then this book is for you.
In this book you will find:


What is Buddhism? Is it a religion?
Who was Siddhartha Gautama? Was he a human or a deity?
What do the Four Noble Truths mean? What is the Noble Eightfold Path?
What are reincarnation, nirvana, and karma?
Why is Theravada Buddhism different from Mahayana Buddhism? Is Zen also a kind of Buddhism?
What exactly is mindfulness?
How do you meditate? What are the different ways to meditate?
Is it possible to practice Buddhist principles without becoming a Buddhist?
How do you become a practicing Buddhist? Do you need to be baptized?

Any additional comments?

I bought this audiobook because I wanted to learn more about the Buddhist practice. It provided me with everything I was looking for. I love the brief history of the practice and the examples of how to successfully practice as a westerner in today's society.

Listen to it over and over again

I've studied a lot of religions like Confucianism, Taoism, and Hinduism. But I haven't read books about Buddhism nor know anything about it. So I wanted to know more about Buddhism and this book has lots of information about it. I find this book really informative and easy to understand. I really liked listening to it during my spare time.
