Publisher's Summary

Discover How to Practice Buddhism to Achieve Higher Levels of Inner Happiness and Mindfulness

Buddhism is general not considered a religion by its Abrahamic counterparts because of its spiritual and individual nature, rather than following a strict deity. Even the name Buddhism doesn't mean that they really pray to Buddha, but rather try to emulate the ways of Buddha - the man that reached enlightenment. In fact, the world Budhi means to have awaken which in Buddhism means to reach enlightenment. The religion was started by a man named Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of this spiritual religion or philosophy, if you will, and the first man to reach enlightenment; hence, he is colloquially referred to as Buddha. Siddhartha was born into a wealthy and influential family in the 4th century B.C., in Eastern India. Due to a prophetic telling, his father decided to keep him away from the outside world so that he would instead concentrate on being a great prince. Despite his father's attempts he was able to get outside of his father's walls to see the outside world in which he saw an old man, a sick man, a dead man, and an abstinent holy man. The holy man was the only one at peace so he decided to follow him.

Disappointing

The first THREE MINUTES and 20 SECONDS of this audio are legal disclaimers!! What a joy-killer! Reading is done in a halting monotone and several words are mispronounced. There is some knowledge here, but it's not worth the agony needed to receive it.
