Published in association with the distinguished Buddhist Society, London, this book provides a lucid study of the primary tenets of Buddhism. It is directed specifically to those seeking to learn the foundations of Buddhist ideas in a straightforward manner, without becoming involved in conflicting sectarian interpretations. The author draws his material directly from the Buddha’s own teachings, known as sutras, as well as from major texts and commentaries recorded in the first centuries after the Buddha’s death. Accepted by all Buddhist sects, these have been translated from the original Pali and Sanskrit languages, and form the basis of what the author describes as “Mainstream” Buddhism.The result is a clear presentation of the Buddha’s teachings that the reader can use as a starting point for further study or for actual Buddhist practice.
