Item Description

 

Own this collection of four books from HarperOne that features popular authors  Steve Hagen, Norman Fischer, Joseph Goldstein, and Donald S. Lopez on Buddhism.  

Bestselling author and renowned Zen teacher Steve Hagen penetrates the most essential and enduring questions at the heart of Buddha's teachings: How can we see the world in each moment, rather than merely as what we think, hope, or fear it is? How can we base our actions on reality, rather than on the longing and loathing of our hearts and minds? And how can we separate the wisdom of Buddhism from the cultural trappings and misconceptions that have come to be associated with it? By being challenged to question what we take for granted, we come to see the world as it truly is. Buddhism Is Not What You Think offers a profound and clear path to a life of joy and freedom.

One Dharma by Joseph Goldstein, one of America's most respected Buddhist teachers, distills a lifetime of practice and teaching into a groundbreaking exploration of the Buddhist tradition taking root on American soil.

In The Story of Buddhism, leading Buddhist scholar Donald S. Lopez Jr. explores the origins of this 2,500-year-old religion and traces its major developments up to the present, focusing not only on the essential elements common to all schools of Buddhism but also revealing the differences among the major traditions. Beginning with the creation and structure of the Buddhist universe, Lopez explores the life of Buddha, the core Buddhist tenets, and the development of the monastic life and lay practices.

Growing up happens whether we like it or not, but maturity must be cultivated. Challenged to consider his own sense of maturity while mentoring a group of teenage boys, Norman Fischer began to investigate our preconceptions about what it means to be "an adult" and shows how crucial true maturity is to leading an engaged, fulfilled life. Taking Our Places details the marks of a mature person and shows how these attributes can help alleviate our suffering and enrich our relationships.
