I especially liked the author's explanation of Karma, which is another word that gets misused a lot. It does not mean, as many people believe, a supernatural form of justice. And now that I understand that I can release my mind of the worry that the guy who cut me off in the construction zone may or may not get his just desserts.
This is a great guide for anyone considering the Buddhist practice, or just looking for a way to bring peace and acceptance into everyday life. It will give you a general idea of the practice and what you can expect. By the end you'll most likely have made up your mind about whether or not Buddhism and meditation are right for you.
The side section of the kindle includes a $2 upgrade for an audio book which is great for people on the go. I particularly like the popular highlights containing notable quotes from Buddha taken from the book. The table of contents is very organized starting with a short biography of the founder, secondly the four basic tenets of Buddhism, and also the different sects of Buddhism found regionally in Asia. The most interesting aspect is that it explains how to actively participate in Buddhism using meditation and mindfulness (self awareness). The different beliefs such as Nirvana, reincarnation, karma etc. Certain aspects of Buddhism appeal to me such as mindfulness and the impermanence of life. I am a little confused by some of the tenets such as acknowledging the suffering of life, maybe it’s a belief that one should maintain a positive attitude. The second tenet states that we should be free of passions and desires, I think having spirit is what makes us human, but I digress. Maybe rereading this book or visiting the local Buddhist temple will help me understand more about Buddhism.
On a side note, there are a few mistakes in the book. There is a graphic on page 88 that covers the text in the chapter, “Buddhism in Daily Life. Just a heads up to the writer. Nevertheless, it was enlightening read. I was given this complimentary eBook for my honest and unbiased review.
