Description About the author Contents
Are you looking for a good read on Buddhism and to learn exactly what the Buddha taught and how it can be applied to your life? Do you wonder what the words "Dharma" and "Shakyamuni" mean, what the Dharma Wheel represents, and why the monastics shave their heads? The high-level teachings of the Buddha do not have to be difficult for you to understand -- his deep philosophy and the articles of practice are laid out in this engaging book that is easy to read and understand. Learn the complete Thirty-Seven Paths to liberation and enlightenment (the expanded version of the Noble Eightfold Path), rather than just the simple Eightfold Path. The complete core teachings on the Four Mindfulness Foundation on meditation, the Four Noble Truths, karma, The 12 Interlinked Factors, and so much more are explained in detail and show how you can apply them to have harmony and happiness in your life. The writing brings to light the true meaning of the great wisdom prajna versus the ordinary knowledge that we acquire. It reveals the Buddha's teaching on how to develop this great wisdom to carry out actions mindfully and to recognize our blessings and ways to cultivate more blessings. Articles such as the Buddhist flag and its five colors, lotus flower, Kasaya robe, prayer bead, swastika, and more are defined and explained how they portray the Buddha's teachings. Enjoy learning the heart of the Buddha's teachings and find out how the symbolisms represent them by reading this book!

The Symbolisms in Buddhism is a contemporary in-depth writing on the philosophies and teachings of the Buddha. It defines who the Buddha is and the significance of events in his life. It explains in detail the Buddhist terminologies (meditation, Enlightenment, Nirvana, Vesak, etc), objects, and rituals so they can be meaningful to you in your practice. The Buddha's teachings of the Middle Way, Cause and Effect, Cause and Condition, impermanence, Five Aggregates, and so much more such as the Mahayana study of the Amitabha's Western Pureland, are extensively explained and elucidated with many life's circumstances and experiences so you can practice and relate to. Most importantly, Chapter 19 "The Practice," devotes 77 pages to show you how to apply the Buddha's teachings to resolve and overcome the challenges in your life, and subsequently have peace and harmony within you and your family. Learn what the numbers 18 and 108 represent in the 18 and 108 prayer beads. Find out what the Buddha and Bodhisattva statues and their body and hand gestures mean. Practice the virtuous teachings in the Five Vehicles to create your good karma. There are 48 beautiful hand drawn illustrations to correlate the symbolisms to the teachings.

A MUST-READ BOOK To Understand The Deep Philosophy And Teachings Of Buddhism With Many Life Examples For You To Apply To Your Practice! Understanding This Truth Will Help You Develop The Inner Peace And Joy That Everyone Seeks.
