Buddhayana: Living Buddhism
This long awaited book, from leading expert Anil Goonewardene, is an insightful, lively and readable account of Buddhism. Drawing on over twenty years of teaching experience, Anil sets out to demonstrate that the three key traditions of Buddhism (Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana) are all rooted in the same foundations and that the central teachings of these different schools are the same. This unique book presents Buddhism as a living, practical religion, giving readers an enlightening insight into an often mystifying tradition. Buddhayana: Living Buddhism offers a fascinating perspective on Buddhism, in all its beauty and nobility, though the eyes of a practising Buddhist born and raised in the tradition that has guided millions of people.
Divided into five parts, covering all aspects of Buddhism from the lives of the Buddha to the various sections of the Buddhist community the book also includes two appendices focusing on the Buddhist view of death, and a case study of Buddhist rebirth.
