Description About the author
 
Today Buddhism is often presented as a religion without dogmas and commandments, without God and without any need to believe, tolerating all and everything -- as no "religion" at all, but as a way of life most suitable to the needs of post-modern Westerners. But is this an accurate image? In this book Buddhism is introduced as a genuine religion, gentle and powerful, being as demanding as it is consoling. Buddhism is certainly not a theistic faith, but neither is it a form of atheism or materialism. Rather it is a challenge to both: a rich source of metaphysical, ethical and spiritual insight that has shaped and nourished countless generations of followers all over Asia and that is now taking firm roots in the West.
Understanding Buddhism, Perry Schmidt-Leukel, Dunedin Academic Press, Paperback, 180 pp, 2006
