Modern Buddhism, Volume 1: Sutra focuses on basic Buddhist teachings and meditations, which everybody can practice straightaway. All the fundamentals of Buddhism meditation and philosophy are found here. Starting with an appreciation of our life and potential, we can gain a profound and practical understanding of our existential condition, and improve all good qualities of mind, including the supreme good heart of universal love and compassion. The explanation of the true nature of reality, ultimate truth emptiness, is very clear and powerful and, if practiced, will lead the reader to lasting mental freedom. A brief history of Kadampa Buddhism also shows how Buddha’s timeless teachings have traveled from teacher to student over thousands of years, and how people in the West are now applying what was once available only to mystics and monks—advice to solve our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life.
