I have always been interested in Buddhism and found this audio book to be an excellent introduction to future study. The narration is done well and I found it very easy to pay attention to. Perhaps most helpful is the list of questions she answers at the end that most beginners would have. To her, Buddhism is not a religion but a way of looking at the world. It is completely compatible with other religions. If you are just curious about Buddhism, this is a good place to start.

This was exactly what I was looking for. Being new to Buddhism I was confused by all of the available literature on this subject and was looking for what I now consider to be an a wonderfully, unfettered introduction to what Buddhism really is and what it means for me. It has given me more confidence in my pursuit to understand Buddhism and myself.

If you could sum up The Naked Buddha in three words, what would they be?
This book is about the journey of a female Dali Lama. Her views on her personal journey is enlightening, right up to what she does now. A very easy, peaceful listen. I would recommend.
What other book might you compare The Naked Buddha to, and why?
Similar to the Dali Lamas journey.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
When she left and started teaching in other countries, as not to scare people she grew her hair !
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I have listened to this book three times.

Dreadful author talks about herself far too much one I will delete as is was painful to listen to.
very practical guide. Worth reading over and over and over again. lots of hidden gems
Buddhism is more about spiritually than religion. The book is spoken lively and use every day language to present the basics precepts of Buddhism and the main variances between Indian, Tibetan and Japanese. If you are looking for a concise introduction this it.
