Buddhism Plain and Simple Book by Steve Hagen | Yoga King
As the popularity of Buddhism soars, so does the complexity of Buddhist interpretation & doctrine. Buddhism Plain & Simple strips Buddhist teachings of the embellishments they have accumulated over the centuries & presents the original way of the Buddha in everyday, accessible language, unencumbered by religious ritual, theory, or belief. Outlining the Buddha's four truths of existence, Zen teacher Steve Hagen explores their practical manifestations in life & describes the path Buddhism provides for coping with the world as we find it. Buddhism Plain & Simple deals exclusively with the here & now, not with speculation or distant realms, & is a profoundly valuable handbook for every person who embarks on a journey to enlightenment. Ideal for beginning & advanced students of Buddhism alike, this is a beautifully written, refreshingly direct guide to a powerfully transforming spiritual philosophy.
