WHAT IS THE DHARMA? The Essential Teachings of the Buddha

by | Read by Jinananda

Philosophy & Religion • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Jinananda is like a patient and helpful teacher as he narrates this examination of the practical nature of Buddhism. This title is particularly engaging because it's written in the first person and speaks directly to the listener. The author clearly explains why he converted to Buddhism and movingly shares his own experiences before and after his conversion. The various schools of Buddhism and their complex lists and ideas are enumerated, making this material especially helpful to those new to the study of Buddhism. The occasional use of Sanskrit (including translations) adds to the listening experience, and the subtle humor is a welcome addition. Listeners will appreciate the parables while absorbing some of Buddhism's intricate concepts. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
