Through this book, I will help you understand what Buddhism is, not only as a religion but also as a spiritual path of life. As this book is for beginners, the book will guide and help you to understand all you need to know about the fundamentals of Buddhism. I have also shared a few Buddhism meditation techniques you can try while you practice the teachings of Buddhism. Over the years, there are a number of misconceptions about Buddhism, especially in the Western nations. This book clarifies what Buddhism is and what Buddhism is not. This book will guide you on how to live a Buddhist life and how to practice Buddhism. Buddhism in this book is depicted in both its conventional perspective and also in present day terms, with step by step application to current ways of life. Buddhism is a way of practice and spiritual improvement prompting insight into the authentic way of reality. Buddhist practices like contemplation are one of the methods for changing yourself and to build up the characteristics of mindfulness, thoughtfulness, and be aware of what is. The experience Buddhism has to offer which has been established since a great many years has made a unique asset for each and every individual who wish to take after 'A way'. 'A way' which eventually comes full circle into Enlightenment or Buddhahood. An Enlightened being sees the way of reality totally unchanged, as it is, without any rose tinted glasses and lives completely and fully as this state. This is the objective of the Buddhist profound life, being free of any anguish for any individual who achieves it. Since Buddhism excludes the possibility of a creator, a few people don't consider it to be a religion in the typical, Western sense. The essential precepts of Buddhist educating are direct and reasonable, nothing is settled or perpetual and activities have results so that change is conceivable. Buddhism addresses itself to all individuals independent of race, nationality, station, sexuality, or gender. Buddhism teaches handy strategies which empower individuals to acknowledge and utilize its lessons in order to change their experience of living, to be completely in charge of their lives.

Der Dalai Lama ist Kult und in der Nähe von Bordeaux scharen sich die Anhänger um Tich Nhat Hanh. Was macht den Buddhismus für viele so faszinierend? Jonathan Landaw und Stephan Bodian führen leicht verständlich in diese fernöstliche Lehre ein. Sie berichten vom Leben des historischen Buddha und von den unterschiedlichen Traditionen, die sich über die Jahrhunderte entwickelt haben. Die Leser erfahren, was es mit dem Kleinen (Hinayana) und dem Großen Fahrzeug (Mahayana) auf sich hat, wie sich der Zen-Buddhismus von der tibetanischen Schule unterscheidet und wie sich diese Lehre friedlich über ganz Asien verbreitet hat. Doch wer ein achtsames Leben im Sinne des Buddha führen möchte, muss nicht in Indien, Tibet, Thailand oder Burma leben. Die Autoren zeigen, wie der Buddhismus unseren Alltag bereichern kann und dass es auch in westlichen Kulturen möglich ist, dem Pfad der Erleuchtung zu folgen.

Die Bekenntnisse einer Katze auf Erleuchtungssuche »Der Dalai Lama ist ein Meister im Umgang mit dem Dosenöffner«, weiß His Holiness’s Cat. Dass er zudem einer der spirituellen Führer der Welt ist, findet die Hauskatze in Dharamsala durchaus angemessen. Während er Staatsmänner, Mönche, Prominente und andere Besucher unterweist, hält sie Hof. Was das Kätzchen dabei aufschnappt, gibt es – durch seine blauen, schrägen Augen betrachtet – auf ebenso inspirierende wie unterhaltsame Weise wieder. So erfährt man viel Berührendes und Überraschendes aus der Welt seiner Heiligkeit. David Michie gelingt ein kleines Kunststück: Seine Protagonistin holt die buddhistische Lehre auf den Boden und vermittelt »auf leisen Pfoten«, wie wir Menschen Glück und Sinn finden können.

Buddhism is a word that describes a set of teachings and practices everyone has heard of but that very few people understand. This is unfortunate, because the teachings and practices of Buddhism are widely applicable and universally beneficial. Laid down by the Buddha and passed on through the ages, these are instructions for living, followed in various ways and all connecting back to a set of core ideas. In Buddhism: Beginner's Guide to Understanding the Core Philosophy, author Shein Luipa takes you from beginning to end, starting on the assumption that what you know about Buddhism could fit onto the head of a pin and leaving you by the pages' end with a strong grasp of what the teachings and practices are all about. This is a book that will change your life and reshape your worldview, initiating you on a singular and thrilling journey of self-discovery and release. It all starts with a single question: what is Buddhism? From that question, Luipa explains the following: * Meditation * The Buddhist Community * Monastic Life * Parishioners * Different Kinds of Buddhism Once through that introductory section, Luipa goes into tremendous depth on the topic of Buddhism, covering these topics in succession: * Buddha's Teaching * The 4 Noble Truths * Following the Teachings of Buddha (Triple Jewel, Five Doctrines, Wheel of Life) * Suffering * Karma * Reincarnation * Nirvana * Yoga (Third Eye, Chakra, Gazing, Kundalini, Kriya, Sound, Tantra) * Meditation Types (Mantra, Vipassana, Zen, Transcendental, Self-Inquiry, Taoist, Emptiness, Breathing, Neiguan, Qigong, Traditional, Guided, Relaxation, Body Scans, Affirmations, Activity-Oriented, Mindfulness, Observation) * Mindful Meditation to Relieve Anxiety and Stress (with specific effects) * Creating a Meditation Space * Meditation Tips and Tricks * Buddhism and Modern Times * Rituals and Rights (Death, Marriage, Birth, Initiation, etc.) In all, this is a dense book but no more dense than it needs to be, a complex book but as simple as it can be, and a powerful book but one that is also immediately accessible. You have heard the word before - Buddhism - and maybe you have some images or connotations that you associate with it in your head. Wisdom is well within your reach, and working to learn the teachings and practices of Buddhism, whether academically or practically, you can take a huge step forward in your personal development and your understand of the world.
