Book Review: “Buddhism – As I See It -“ I used to pick up books and CDs from temples and meditation centres that I visited until I have too many of them that I stopped doing so. Must really read and listen one whatever I take mah.

and also to pass them on when I finish doing so. This is a very good introductory book about Buddhism. This book is written in a simple language and easy to read. It would be nice to have a glossary of English translation of the ancient words at the back of the book.

This book inspired me to read further about the subject/5(). It's a good book if you want the health benefits of meditation and the health benefits of 'buddhism,' which the book oversimplifies to the point where it ignores the spirituality Buddhism entails but not good if you actually want to discover more about buddhism as I did/5().

This isn't a book about converting you over to Buddhism per se, but rather it's a book about how practicing Buddhism can help you in your everyday life. It touches upon meditation techniques and the history of Buddhism as well. The meditation and other techniques in this book can improve your health through practice and daily use/5(55).

Dr. David Brazier’s latest book: Buddhism is a Religion: You Can Believe It is a light piercing into the complex metaphysical understandings of Buddhist religious practice, presented in a manner that is clear and understandable/5(14).

The author, as it is evident from the title of the book, is not a Buddhist but a friend of Buddhism. He wanted to become a Buddhist at certain times in his life, but found that the Buddhist communities with which he collaborated had very much a Buddhist exceptionalist attitude, a sense of having found the true path, a sense of superiority.4/4(2).

To be clear, this book gives an overview of the practice of Buddhism: what it is, what several major variations of practice are, a brief history of where it comes from and the core practices. It emphasizes that to be Buddhist is not necessarily a spiritual practice: many atheists and agnostics practice/5.

Which is where my book, The No-Nonsense Guide to Using Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy For A Better Life, comes in. This unique 96 page eBook filters out the mystery of these philosophies and shows you how to improve all aspects of daily living, including your relationships, emotional resilience and state of.

I see that happening already. For example, a friend sent me a little video about a book called The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck. I have not read the book, but the video about it makes me think that whoever wrote it might have picked up on the Buddhist attitude somehow. Buddhism is a nontheistic religion that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices largely based on teachings attributed to Siddhartha Gautama, who is commonly known as the Buddha, meaning "the awakened one".

According to Buddhist tradition, the Buddha lived and taught in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime. There are a lot of good books on Dharma (Pali: Dhamma), but I'd recommend starting of with the original Theravada Buddhism and checking out the Mahayana traditions like Zen and Tibetan when you have a grasp of the basics.

What you read will depend on what particular problems brought you to Buddhism. Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by the founder of San Francisco Zen Center, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, is one of the undisputed classics of American Buddhism.

First published inthe book’s simple approach and plainspoken language have made it timeless. | Read an excerpt here.

Open Heart, Open Mind. by Tsoknyi Rinpoche with Eric Swanson. Buddhism, religion and philosophy that developed from the teachings of the Buddha (Sanskrit: “Awakened One”), a teacher who lived in northern India between the mid-6th and mid-4th centuries bce (before the Common Era).

I see the Way of Zen not so much as an exposition of a secularized version of Zen Buddhism (or Eastern thought more generally), explained in a manner easily understood by Westerners (which it is), but more as an accoutrement to Eastern spiritual practices like meditation and other numinous experiences derived from Eastern thought/5.

10 Buddhist books everyone should read, as selected by the editors of Lion’s Roar. After the Ecstasy, the Laundry by Jack Kornfield (Bantam, ) According to Jack Kornfield, enlightenment does exist and is even pretty common.

The rub is that after. They see the world without the many filters and biases of the average person, and operate on a medium unbeknownst to the rest of us. Does Buddhism Have a God. Buddhism has no God, rendering it neither monotheistic nor polytheistic.

This is why Buddhism is less often referred to as a religion, and more accurately known as a spiritual : Lachlan Brown. Another answer wrote that "Buddhism is not a religion based on a Holy Book" which is more or less true: If you are one of the so-called People of the Book, perhaps you could over-estimate the importance of a "book" or Bible.; Even so, some words that I guess may be equally important in Buddhism include Buddhavacana, Sangha, Dhamma, (not to mention "lineage"), and various (practical) practices.

Buddhism is a religion that was founded by Siddhartha Gautama (“The Buddha”) more than 2, years ago in India. With about million followers, scholars consider Buddhism one of.
