Synopsis

This program includes an introduction read by the author.

A modern guide to the teachings of Buddhism.

Buddhism: An Introduction to the Buddha’s Life, Teachings, and Practices is an indispensable guide to a 2,600-year-old wisdom tradition that has transformed the lives of millions across centuries and around the world. Readers will learn how Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha, one of the most influential spiritual leaders of all time, and discover how they too can follow his revolutionary methods to attain happiness and inner freedom. Along with accessible overviews of central teachings—the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, karma, core virtues like kindness and compassion, and more—Buddhism covers such basics as:

- the three main Buddhist traditions—Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana—historically and their relevance today
- the role of meditation and mindfulness in Buddhist practice
- step-by-step instruction in key Buddhist practices

Writing in an engaging, approachable style, author Joan Duncan Oliver outlines the fundamentals of Buddhism for every listener, revealing its timeless truths and their relevance for finding peace in uncertain times. A practitioner of Buddhist meditation for forty years, Oliver has written extensively on Buddhist wisdom and its application to daily life. Her practical approach makes Buddhism an essential modern guidebook to an ancient tradition.
