Description

This eBook allows you to grasp the basic principles of Buddhism in just a few minutes.

Much has been written about Buddhism and how to practice it. Readers will have no difficulty finding hundreds of books on the topic. It simply focuses on the essence of Buddhism, as expressed in the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path. It is what the Buddha first talked about after he became enlightened – this is what makes it the essence.

Reading this eBook should not conflict with your existing religious belief, since strictly speaking, Buddhism is not a religion. It does not extol belief in an external God. It does not seek to replace your existing religious beliefs, only to supplement them with a practical but profound set of psychological principles.

The Buddha, in all likelihood, would rather his followers describe themselves simply as Followers of The Way.

    I happened to find this ebook looking through a friend's Facebook page. I am very unsettled within and seek acceptance of self, clarity, a sort of rejuvenation of motivation, creativity and releasing my attachment to the physical. This ebook was short, easy to read, follow and comprehend. I've experienced difficulties focusing short term and long term. I used to be a voracious reader and it's frustrating not being able to read a book regardless of subject. I've often wondered about buddhism and decided to focus and read this brief explanation of what the teachings entail. I was not disappointed. I thank you for providing this basic information for a general view. I will incorporate some of what I've learned and move forward with releasing the unnecessary and learning more.
