Buddhism Is Not What You Think: Finding Freedom Beyond Beliefs

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Steven Hagen

Narrated By: Paul Heitsch

Publisher: Vibrance Press

Date: February 2018

Duration: 6 hours 29 minutes

Summary:

Bestselling author and renowned Zen teacher Steve Hagen penetrates the most essential and enduring questions at the heart of the Buddha's teachings: How can we see the world in each moment, rather than merely as what we think, hope, or fear it is? How can we base our actions on reality, rather than on the longing and loathing of our hearts and minds? How can we live lives that are wise, compassionate, and in tune with reality? And how can we separate the wisdom of Buddhism from the cultural trappings and misconceptions that have come to be associated with it? Drawing on down-to-earth examples from everyday life and stories from Buddhist teachers past and present, Hagen tackles these fundamental inquiries with his trademark lucid, straightforward prose. The newcomer to Buddhism will be inspired by this accessible and provocative introduction, and those more familiar with Buddhism will welcome this much needed hands-on guide to understanding what it truly means to be awake. By being challenged to question what we take for granted, we come to see the world as it truly is. Buddhism Is Not What You Think offers a profound and clear path to a life of joy and freedom.

    After reading this book, my life transformed. At that time I had a successful career in the real estate industry. When the financial collapse occured, the housing crisis went to the bottom. My career, as I knew it, was gone. Along with it popped up fear, anxiety, anger, resentment. By total chance, I encountered the book in a small privately owned bookstore...it totally change the way I think and live my life to the better. Steve Hagens first book, Buddhism Plain and Simple is a masterpiece as well. Modest, understasted, Venerable Steve Hagen is wise and generous in offering us his knowledge from multiple years of study and practice. Thank you for contributing to the positive transformation of my life, kind Sir.
