Beginners guide to Buddhism

Posted by on Apr 21, 2013 in Buddhism | 580 Comments

I stayed up till 4am on Friday night. Alas, I wasn’t partying.

Instead, I was finishing off writing a free download I’ve been working on for a couple of months – Buddhism: The Basics.

It’s been almost a year since I came up with the idea for this blog. I started it because I wanted to help people who wanted to transform their lives.

I’ve found Buddhism to be such a useful set of tools, techniques and ideas for living. I’ve been lucky enough to have some great teachers along the way, and I’ve committed years to studying and practising.

The web is what I know best because of my day job, so a blog seemed the obvious way to go.

Since then I’ve been contacted by so many people with all kinds of questions. But one that comes up again and again is:

Where do I go to get an overview of the basics of Buddhism as quickly as possible?

If you’re new to Buddhism and just starting to explore, you don’t want to have to book two weeks off work and go to a temple to do ten hours of meditation a day. You just want the basics.

If at all possible, you want to be able to read them in the time it takes to have your lunch.

So that’s what I’ve been writing. The basics – in under 10 pages.

It’s tougher to write a short thing than it is to write a long thing.

But at last it’s ready!

To get it, all you have to do is sign up to my email list. Not only will you get instant access to the download, you’ll also get an email every couple of weeks with teachings on Buddhism that I don’t publish on the blog.

So if you want to get an overview of key Buddhist ideas – like the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path, get your free download!
