Besides incessant listening to audiobooks, I also read on my Kindle at night, birdwatch, garden (roses, daylilies), and do genealogy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I put it on to only listen for 30 minutes and ended up listening to the whole book. The author was able to explain buddhism a complex system in a simple way anyone can understand.
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
