Sington's precise British diction and soothing voice are the perfect backdrop for discovering the Buddhist religion as taught by Gyatso. Author of 19 other books on the subject, Gyatso offers the basic teachings of Buddha in their simplest form for beginners. Sections include "Basic Buddhism," "The Path to Liberation," "The Path to Enlightenment", and an appendix with two breathing meditations. Chapter headings listed on the jacket allow listeners to easily locate subjects of interest on the CDs, such as "What Is Karma?" "The Perfection of Wisdom" and "The Three Higher Trainings." Listeners hear only the voice of Sington throughout the production; there is no background music or sound of any kind, even during long silences in the meditation section. While this may seem odd to a culture used to constant sound, it's not so strange considering the simple life of Buddha and the enlightenment sought by his followers. This is a calming, informative look at Buddhism. Based on the Tharpa paperback. (Oct.)
