Book Description

This simple guide to the teachings of the Buddha strips away the cultural and traditional aspects of the faith and instead looks at the teachings of the Buddha in their purest form as he taught them more than 2,000 years ago. Starting from the most basic Buddhist principles, the reader is guided through the Buddha's key Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path, to awareness, mindfulness and meditation and discusses how Buddhism derives its morality.

Perfect for atheists, the religious and even seasoned Buddhists, the Buddha's teachings are explained without spiritual additions and more recent cultural additions and lays out the core arguments for how Buddhism helps the follower to attain total happiness. While still maintaining its simple, concise tone, the book provides a strong foundation of knowledge which is enough to start you on your path to enlightenment.

This short guide to the Buddha's teachings is perfect for anyone looking for an insight into the core of the Buddha's beautiful message of attaining peace, love, total happiness and contentment here on Earth.
