Buddhism for Beginners

The audiobook goes on the very nature that is the human condition without the usual philosophies. I would say, this is a very concise manual for seekers.
If you are even thinking about Buddhism then this is a wonderful starter book.
Easy to listen and understand.

I heard about Buddhism from way back but never got to study it eventhough I heard some nice things. I’m glad I bought the audiobook. It’s hopefully a great primer.

Best book ever!!

This speaker has an eye for accuracy. I loved the presentation of the
four noble truths as well as her non-judgmental tone of narration. Really
helps with digesting this stuff.

Quite challenging and profitable

The thought on the varieties of Buddhism is appealing. It helps sort out
differences in varying aspects on Buddhism.

Understandable!!

This audiobook is just it. It straightens out the base construct of life
which is surrounded by fact rather than faith.

really amazing!

The audiobook is an eye opener on the concepts of Buddhism. For folks with divergent beliefs, it’ll ease you up on the understanding behind the core concepts of karma, nirvana etc without too much jargon and abstract concepts.
