Summary

What is Zen? What are its doctrinal principles? What is its purpose? These are just some of the questions this audiobook will answer.

Zen is a methodology of the spirit, conscience and mind that can be adopted by anyone, anywhere and at any time.

Zen is a practice that needs to be experienced, not understood. Perhaps for this reason for us Westerners it may seem difficult, but it's actually simpler than you might think.

In this audiobook you will discover the different kinds of meditation, the Mindfulzen, the difference between detachment and non-attachment.

This incredibile audiobook will:

  • make you think and feel in new and different ways
  • make you grasp the essence of what is around you
  • help to take your life into the path of awareness
  • help you to adapt to life's inevitable changes
  • teach you how to nurture a mindful happiness in your daily life

Zen is found in every moment of our life, and the quality of our life depends on the degree of awareness with which we live it.

Doing meditation, eating well, having fulfilling sex, having a garden, walking in Zen mode are all ways to feel good.

Curious analogies between East and West and pop references makes this audiobook both a pleasant and an interesting listen.

At the end of the audiobook we find experiences, stories, and anecdotes that call for a more detailed reflection.

Suitable for everyone, even for those who are completely fasting on Eastern religions.

Enjoy the listen!

Best one

Personally, I admire and respect the philosophy and teachings of Buddhism. It was great to learn more about their beliefs with this book. Buddhism's faith lie mostly on building good Karma in your life. All the teachings of Buddha points to the direction of humble way of living focused on doing good and allowing yourself to have good intentions in every action so that you will have spiritual happiness

Satisfied

It's helpful guide for Buddhism. This book will not only briefly take you through Siddhartha’s story on how he became known as Buddha but will also give you the basics of Buddhism. With this book, Buddhism will become more than just the statue of Buddha in someone’s garden. It will help lead you down your own path of enlightenment. Especially this book is easy to understand for beginners.

Good book

This is another well thought out and beautifully presented guide on Buddhism. I have been interested in Buddhism for some time and when I listen a trilogy of books that featured a Buddhist, it rekindled my interest and I decided to study more. This was one of two books I bought for beginners. This book went into more detail. It was easy to understand and answered many questions I had about Buddhism.

Five Stars

This book covers the center of common Buddhism pleasantly. You can get the nuts and bolts here. On the off chance that you have inquiries concerning singular Buddhist organizations or conventions, there are countless books and sites that have that kind of data in overpowering plenitude.
