A small must read
I just finished a little booklet called The Basic Purpose of Following the Buddha by Venerable Yin Shun. It is printed by H.K. Buddhist Book Distributor. I am thankful to the International Buddhist Society Temple in Richmond for making this available to me. It covers such topics as the meaning of existence, where humans fit in the order of the universe, proceeds to cover the reasons why we should heed the Buddha’s message, winding up with the benefits of following this path. It is filled with everyday world examples, and is written in a clear concise format. It also gives a basic description of the Buddhist world view, contrasted to the major religious practices of the world. Over the next few days, I will be rereading and contemplating this book.
