about

“This is the clearest and most precise exposition of Buddhism I have ever read. If you’re looking for enlightenment rather than just scholarly knowledge, you’d better read this.”—Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

This is a book about awareness. It’s about being “awake” and in touch with what is going on here and now. Practical and down-to-earth, it deals exclusively with the present, not with speculation, theory, or belief in some far off time and place. The teachings of the Buddha are plain and straightforward, and because they remain focused on the moment, they are just as relevant now as they have ever been. Buddhism Plain and Simple: The Practice of Being Aware, Right Now, Every Day is the book for anyone wanting to discover, or rediscover, the essence of Buddhism.

From Our Editors

Buddhism is stripped down to its bare bones in this straightforward guide that makes the original way of the Buddha accessible for all. Zen priest Steve Hagen wipes away centuries of embellishments and presents a clear and wise approach to Buddhism that is unencumbered by religious ritual and theory. Buddhism Plain and Simple stresses the importance of being aware of the here and now and outlines the Buddha's four truths of existence and looks at their practicalities in the modern world. This guide aims not only to inform, but also to enlighten and is a valuable primer for new and advanced students of this spiritual philosophy.
