In Case You Ever Wondered . . .

like I did, what Buddhism is about--here is an in depth but relatively short overview. It will take up less than three hours of your time. Doesn't cost very much, either.

You might learn, as I did, that Buddha is not there to be worshiped but instead, emulated. This, and many other things you might or might not have wondered about. That alone was a big surprise for me. This is a great little audiobook for the curious. It is a painless way to gain a little more knowledge. If you have any interest and curiosity at all about Buddhism, here is a great way to start. (From the humble opinion of a non-religious person.)

As a new and struggling member of the Nichren dishonin sect I found myself struggling with all the superficial trappings. Which in consequence had me questioning the basic philosophy .
My need and desire was to find the way. To become the master of my own mind and to understand and control my life, and the effects on others as an advisor and due to the influence I seem to have on others.
Because people listen to me and respect many of my ideas and copy them. I became concerned that I was doing right. This book has been a great help thank you very much. Monah
