Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn why the awakening of the mindfulness is decisive for your peace? If yes, then keep reading...Get this simple and clear meditation guide in 12 steps to begin a path of enlightenment and true liberation.

Many people hear the word, "Buddhism", and they think it is a religion. However, a person of any religion can bring Buddhist principles into their life without giving up their religious beliefs. There is no "God" to worship if you practice Buddhism.

There are not Buddhist churches on every other street corner in every town in the Bible belt of the United States. There are no potluck dinners in the fellowship hall after a sermon. Buddhism can be viewed as a religion - and under that view, Buddhism is the fourth largest religion in the world - but it is much more than that, its truth goes much deeper than a traditional religion. 

Buddhism is a philosophy - it is a way of living your life following a path of spiritual development that leads you to the truth of reality. There is no one definition of Buddhism because it is a practicing philosophy that you cannot truly understand until you actually experience it. However, that does not mean that this book is useless; rather, it is a guide to give you a basic understanding of the principles, beliefs, and practices of Buddhism. This will allow you to decide for yourself if Buddhism has a place in your life. Should you choose to follow the path of the Buddha, you can expect Buddhism to change your life. 

In this audiobook, you will learn more about:

  • The Origin of Buddhism
  • The Teachings of Buddhism
  • The Different School of Buddhism
  • The Most Important Aspects of Buddhism
  • Buddhism in Our Time
  • How to Practice five Precepts of Buddhism
  • The Essence of Life and Enlightenment
  • Buddhism for Children
  • Creating a Meditation Space in Your Home
  • Typical Buddhist meditation
  • And more!

There are varied schools of Buddhism, such as Zen and Tibetan. However, the basic principles and concepts are the same as the goal of enlightenment never changing. Buddhism truly is a way of life, rather than a traditional religion. There is a long history behind Buddhism, one that tells the story of the founder of this philosophical way of life.

We call a person who follows this spiritual path one who “practices” Buddhism. That is because Buddhism requires daily practice at understanding it and following its path. You do not simply read one book and come away enlightened.

When you choose to be a Buddhist practitioner, you set yourself on a lifelong path that will help you to grow and learn what it means to be human. You will find an inner peace. You will learn why Buddhist mindfulness can help you to feel happier, more content, and more satisfied with your life.

Many religions include the concept of a creator god or gods. Buddhism does not. Because of this, some people, especially in the West, have trouble viewing it as a religion. But it really does not matter what you call it.
