Weekly readings

On Sunday, June 16, we’ll discuss Chapter 5 of the book, “Buddhism Plain and Simple.”

A review of this book appears below.

“Buddhism Plain & Simple” by Steve Hagen

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.
