Buddhism is Not What You Think: Finding Freedom Beyond Beliefs
What is Buddhism? What are its true teachings? What can it bring to our lives? Here Steve Hagen, a Zen priest, cuts through the many misconceptions surrounding Buddhism, and shows us its true purpose. Drawing on down-to-earth examples from everyday life, this practical and straightforward guide penetrates the most essential and enduring questions at the heart of the Buddha's teachings: How can we see the world in each moment, rather than merely as what we think, hope, or fear it is? How can we base our actions on reality? How can we live lives that are wise, compassionate, open and honest? This book offers a profound and clear path to a life of joy and freedom.
