Buddhism in a Nutshell Online
is an overview of the complete Buddhist path to enlightenment that combines the blessings and transformational teachings of Tibetan Buddhist masters Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche with the candidly refreshing perspective of Western teacher Venerable Amy Miller. It provides students with the information they need for their spiritual journey along with advice on how to integrate these teachings into daily life. In addition, readers are given simple meditation techniques to help bring each topic “from the head into the heart.”
Topics covered include the life of the Buddha, the four noble truths, and a commentary on the steps of the path to enlightenment following The Foundation of All Good Qualities, a prayer requesting blessings written by the Tibetan saint, Lama Tsongkhapa. This is a unique blend of teachings and tools for spiritual seekers that is long overdue.
