Mindfulness meditation is everywhere these days, from the therapy couch to the Google campus, from prisons to athletic events. But what are the origins of this surge in mindfulness? What kind of worldview and lifestyle went along with these ancient techniques of meditative training? And, beyond the questionable metaphysics and well-worn pop-psychology bromides, what is meditation actually for?

This book explores the Buddhist ideas behind the mindfulness techniques that have seen such a groundswell of popularity. It covers meditation not just as a body of techniques for relaxation and stress relief to accessorize our busy modern lives, but as part of a radical system of self-transformation that offers the possibility of profound liberation.

In this book, the Buddhist system and the ideas behind it are presented, not as a religion that's asking for your allegiance, but as a body of theory and practice geared towards fostering an an inner revolution.

Buddhism for beginners will teach you :

  • The worldview underpinning Buddhist meditation techniques, and what those techniques were actually intended for.

  • The principles that guide a life lived genuinely, gracefully, and compassionately.

  • What meditation is all about in the context of the Buddhist path, and how to get into the practice of working with your mind.

  • A surprising vision of the self, the mind, and the nature of human experience that can fundamentally alter the way you look at the world.

Check out some of the testimonials below:

"If I had the choice of being lectured about Buddhism or reading a book, I'd pick this specific book because it is so nicely written. It starts out pretty slow paced introducing a bunch of concepts related to Buddhism before moving towards meditation and the like. It sucked me in right away and I continued flipping page after page nonstop. Reading in a quiet room sure helped and I felt this great sense of calmness. It's pretty amazing!"

"If you are beginning to practice Buddhism or are contemplating doing so, this book is a great place to start. It is the perfect book to give to friends or family members who are not familiar with Buddhism but want to understand your newfound spirituality. This book was extremely easy for me to understand and I fully as though the concepts presented were something that I could begin to apply now and by my own unaided strength. I would recommend this book to anyone else who is curious about Buddhism regardless of whether or not you intend on making Buddhism part of your life."

Fundamentos Del Budismo (Spanish Edition)
El Gran Gautama le dio al mundo una Enseñanza completa para construir la vida perfecta. Cada intento de endiosarlo conduce a lo absurdo.
Antes de Gautama hubo toda una sucesión de aquellos que enfatizaron sobre el bien común, pero sus enseñanzas se convirtieron en polvo con el pasar de los milenios. Por lo tanto, la Enseñanza de Gautama debe ser aceptada como la primera que acerca de las leyes de la materia y la evolución del mundo.
La comprensión contemporánea de la comunidad nos permite crear un puente maravilloso desde Gautama Buddha hasta el presente. Esto es un hecho inmutable, ni para exaltar o minimizar.
Las leyes de la intrepidez, de la renunciación a la propiedad, de la evaluación de la labor, de la dignidad de la personalidad humana más allá de castas o distinciones mundanas, la ley del conocimiento verdadero y del amor basado en el auto-conocimiento hacen las alianzas de los Maestros un continuo arcoíris del gozo de la humanidad.
Construyamos los “Fundamentos del Budismo” en sus alianzas manifestadas. La Enseñanza simple, igual en belleza al Cosmos despejará cualquier sugerencia de idolatría, indigno de los grandes Maestros de la humanidad.
El conocimiento fue el sendero conducente hacia todos los grandes Maestros. El conocimiento permitirá un acercamiento vital y libre hacia la gran Enseñanza, tan vitalmente real como la gran Materia misma.
Hablaremos brevemente acerca de aquellos fundamentos que no pueden ser negados y dejaremos las complejidades para el futuro.
¡Gozo a la humanidad! ¡Gozo a todos los que laboran!

Buddhism from Islamic Perspective
Buddhism is the religion of more than 500 million people around the globe. The majority of those people live in Asia but there are substantial Buddhist communities in other continents. There are two main Buddhist traditions, Theravada (The School of the Elders) and Mahayana (The Great Vehicle). Buddhism is not strictly a religion and is often described a philosophy of life. 

According to Theravada scripture the Buddha (Siddartha Gautama) was born in the 5th century BCE. He was the son of King Śuddhodana, the ruler of a small kingdom in what is modern day Nepal. Shortly after his birth, eight Brahmins were called upon to predict the child’s future. Seven Brahmins prophesised that the young prince would either be a great ruler, or renounce worldly pleasures and live the life of a holy man. 

One however, was sure the child would be a holy man. The King had great worldly ambitions for his son therefore kept the Prince within the confines of the royal palace. At age 29 the prince escaped confinement and had several encounters with the outside world. These encounters became known in scripture as the four sights.

The Little Book of the Life of the Buddha (The Little Books on Buddhism 3)
In the centuries that followed the Buddha’s death there were many fanciful and mythologized accounts of his life. Unfortunately these stories gained traction, and even today movies and television programs are often based on these accounts. The Little Book of the Life of the Buddha goes back to the original sources in order to reconstruct his life from the oldest material. This helps answer important questions about the nature of the Buddha and his quest for Awakening.
Despite some assertions that there is little biographical information about the life of the Buddha, quite the opposite is true. In fact, a major hurdle for any biographer of the Buddha is the enormous amount of information that is scattered throughout the thousands of pages of canonical literature. This information is enhanced by some extraordinary research and archeology from the past 200 years.
But this is not simply a scholastic biography. The important question is, “What can I learn from the life of the Buddha?” How does it help me become a better person, and a better meditator? How can I learn from the many inspirational people in the Buddha’s life? The Little Book of the Life of the Buddha looks at the often subtle lessons in his teaching. This brings us closer to understanding the man and his Dharma, and how it helps us become happier, wiser, more useful people.

Foundations of Buddhism
The Great Gotama gave to the world a complete Teaching of the perfect construction of life. Each attempt to make a god of the great revolutionist, leads to absurdity.
Previous to Gotama there was, of course, a whole succession of those who bore the common welfare, but their teachings crumbled to dust in the course of millenniums. Therefore the Teaching of Gotama should be accepted as the first teaching of the laws of matter and the evolution of the world.
Contemporary understanding of the community permits a wondrous bridge from Gotama Buddha up to the present time. We pronounce this formula neither for extolling nor for demeaning, but as an evident and immutable fact.
The law of fearlessness, the law of the renunciation of property, the law of the evaluation of labor, the law of the dignity of human personality, beyond castes and outer distinctions, the law of true knowledge, the law of love based upon self-knowledge, make of the covenants of the Teachers a continuous rainbow of the joy of humanity.
Let us construct the foundations of Buddhism in its manifested covenants. The simple Teaching, equal in beauty to the Cosmos, will dispel every suggestion of idolatry, unworthy of the great Teacher of men.
Knowledge was the leading path of all great Teachers. Knowledge will permit a free and vital approach to the great Teaching, as vitally real as is great Matter itself.
We shall not introduce the latest complexities; we shall speak briefly about those foundations that cannot be denied.
Joy to all peoples! Joy to all those who labor!
