Buddhism Plain & Simple: The Practice of Being Aware, Right Now, Every Day


Buddhism Plain & Simple: The Practice of Being Aware, Right Now, Every Day Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Buddhism Plain and Simple offers a straightforward treatise on Buddhism in general and on awareness in particular. Steve Hagan presents the Buddha's uncluttered, original teachings in everyday, accessible language unencumbered by religious ritual. This book is about awareness.

For people investigating Buddhist teachings and meditation for the first time, Buddhism Plain and Simple offers a clear look at the wisdom and guidance of the Buddha—an enlightened teacher who lived some 2,500 years ago—yet whose teachings remain as vital and penetrating today as ever. For every person with a desire to see deeply into the nature of existence, it is a call to mindfulness and awakening.
