I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to understand Buddhism for any reason.
Excellent Way to start to understand Buddhism, a book that one should study to realise and digest the basic teachings of the Buddha.
Basically, if you've not read this book--regardless of whatever else you may have read--you are assuredly missing something.
This is a very good book that explains very clearly what the Buddha taught and what he didn't teach. A great book for beginners. I like that it uses ancient sources for its ideas. Read morePublished 2 hours ago by Joseph P. Zimmerman
