Summary

Buddhism for Beginners: A Simple Guide to Practicing and Understand Buddhist Teachings, to Meditation and Peace Within. From the Birth and Evolution of Buddhism to the Present Day

Are you interested in meditation and you want peace in your life? 

Do you want to practice Buddhism, but you don't understand it?  

Then keep reading to find the answer to all your questions!  

A lot of people think about religion when they hear the word "Buddhism", but some of them deny it because Buddhism doesn't say anything about loving a divinity. 

The ones that really know what Buddhism is say it consists of a way of thinking, a lifestyle. 

Buddhism started from the Asia continent and expanded all over Europe and America. It is a famous lifestyle, and a lot of people want to try it. But to start being a Buddhist, you will need a good guide to lead your way! 

Here it is what you will find inside the book:  

  •  What is Buddhism?
  •  How to use incense sticks and what their meaning is 
  •  10 facts you didn't know about Buddhism 
  •   The American Buddhism
  •   Which are the symbols of Buddha in gardens 

...and much more!  

In this book, you will find out that Buddhism is an exceptionally unpredictable convention that can be seen as a religion or something completely different; it depends upon the way you look at it. 

So what are you waiting for? Don't you want a peaceful life? Then scroll the page and press the "Buy" button!

difficult to follow

it's important that a narrator knows how to narrate from reading text. from the intonation on the words it's clear Kamal King hasn't acquired this skill yet. I got 5 minutes in and felt lost. I thought maybe it's a problem with the audible player. if I could give it less than 0 stars it would merit even less.

narrator difficult to follow

story well written, it's the narrators way of speaking I find difficult to follow. I'll probably get this as a printed version instead.

Always good to start out slow.

This audiobook is a very helpful introduction to Buddhism. The author made sure to explain things clearly and continue to define words throughout the entire audiobook, just to help the reader stay on track.

Achieving inner peace.

Tuning in to this is a synergistic method to trigger those lone snapshots of appreciation. I feel progressively great with the Buddha religion.

This audio journey deepened my understanding of the basic tenets of Buddhism while at the same time providing so much room for simultaneous reflection and participation. Narrator's voice is easy to listen to and very down to earth. So incredibly worthwhile.

This audiobook provides a good overview.

This audiobook provides a good overview of Buddhist philosophy without getting lost in the weeds. His quiet, humorous delivery is very pleasant to listen to. I really learned a great deal without having to focus deeply - I mostly listened to this in transit.

Great Introduction to the Subject

I've listen other intros to Buddhism, but none were as straightforward and intelligible as this one. It's not assumed that you know, or want to know, a bunch of sanskrit claptrap. Key ideas and practices are put forward and explained clearly.

Effective for beginners

This audiobook is a daily reminder of the value of the Buddhist perspective and practice. I am a bit confused by the comments about this not being for beginners. To me, it seems like an appropriate and gentle introduction.

I just purchased another audiobook by this

This is a must-have for anyone who is unfamiliar with Buddhism or is interested in learning what it is and how to apply it to your everyday life. I listen to this book at least twice a week and parts of it daily! He makes it easy to understand and how to apply it to every day living. It is in layman terms, humorous, insightful. You walk away with a very in-depth understanding of what Buddhism is and how it can benefit your life!

I love this audible!

A most excellent audiobook. i will admit that he kinda sounds like a subdued the speaking voice kinda turned me off at first but i hung with it because of the content. he has a good cadence and clarity of speech so it's easy to get past the tone.

Excellent audiobook

I came to appreciate their reactions and laughter and got great enjoyment from it. I also purchased Meditation for Beginners from Mr Kornfield and have also found it helpful and enjoyable. Listen at bedtime for a great nights sleep.
