This eBook allows you to grasp the basic principles of Buddhism in just a few minutes.
Much has been written about Buddhism and how to practice it. Readers will have no difficulty finding hundreds of books on the topic. It simply focuses on the essence of Buddhism, as expressed in the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-fold Path. It is what the Buddha first talked about after he became enlightened – this is what makes it the essence.
Reading this eBook should not conflict with your existing religious belief, since strictly speaking, Buddhism is not a religion. It does not extol belief in an external God. It does not seek to replace your existing religious beliefs, only to supplement them with a practical but profound set of psychological principles.
The Buddha, in all likelihood, would rather his followers describe themselves simply as Followers of The Way.

A good brief view.
Well written and an easy read.
Straight and to the point. Before reading this book I had very little experience with Buddhism. I had heard all the different conceptual thoughts of the purpose of Buddhism. Whether it was a religion or philosophy or if it was good or bad. It is safe to say that this book answered all of that and more. The best part is prior to reading this book I had embarked on a journey of personal philosophy and truth. This book answered so much for me and somethings that I had been contemplating for at least 20 years.
Buddhism: the essence
I appreciate the way the author allows me to understand the essence of Buddhism. It is difficult to understand books on Buddhism, but this book allows me to feel comfortable in exploring other books on buddhism.
