Buddhism for Beginners : A Guide to Enlightened Living
by C. Alexander Simpkins and Annellen Simpkins




Overview -
For those searching for mindful moments or for a more engaged way of navigating life in the twenty-first century, Buddhism for Beginners opens the door to understanding Buddhism's key concepts and practices. The authors tap into their years of training and study in meditation, martial arts and Eastern philosophy to bring readers a comprehensive introduction to the spiritual tenets and attainments that mark the pathway to enlightenment.

In this new hardcover edition, the authors explain in clear and simple terms:

  • The history of Buddhism
  • The key themes and belief systems (the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, Mahayana, nirvana and more)
  • Ways of integrating Buddhist principles and philosophy into the everyday
  • The organizing notions and overarching thesis of Buddhism: to live fully aware in the moment, to see things as they truly are, and to recognize yourself as part of the whole
  • Buddhism's relevance today

Buddhism for Beginners then completes this introduction to meditation and mindful moments by offering simple exercises, practices and prompts reflective and supportive of the Buddhist teachings and tenets laid out in the volume, including filling- and clearing-the-mind meditations, performing acts of compassion and inner-peace and conflict-resolution exercises.

An essential purchase for people looking to integrate Buddhist principles into their lives or for those seeking a more meaningful, mindful or meditative path.
