"I am more relaxed"
I have read a lot of books in regards to Buddhism and most of the books just made my mind confused and wanting for more answers. This book is very different from others, it is easy to understand and can be easily applied into everyday practice.
"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.)
I liked that it was easy to understand. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in Buddhism. It is a great book and the narration kept it interesting.
I feel it gave me asolid idea of what Buddhism is and where togo next.
If you are looking for a good beginner's guide on Buddhism, I recommend this book. I found it had the right level of detail to explain without over whelming me. Last thing I need is to try and drink from a fire hose. Don't be intimidated. Here is a good place to start.
"Clear, concise, and..."
very inspiring! So far, this is the best book I've read on Buddhism. Thank you for making it relatable to modern western life.
"better than I expected for a short book"
we liked it.. finished in a car trip over the weekend. it really put things in perspective!
"Great Content Good Starting Point"
The content was good, solid practices regardless of personal or religious background. If you are just starting to explore Buddhism or you just want ideas on how to lead a more balanced life this book is a great start.
I listened to the entire book in one sitting but I plan to listen to it a few more times.
"Find Inner Peace Through Buddhism"
Find Inner Peace Through Buddhism
Another great book on Buddhism and how one can discover the path to true self mastery and to obtain the ultimate happiness...inner peace.
This is my first Buddha book that u was able to get through. I feel that this was a great intro to Buddhism and gave plenty of portals to look into on the matter. Definitely will be mentioning this to my friends.
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
