"Writing a 'nuts and bolts' guide that is genuinely wise, charmingly conversational, and a pleasure to read requires a particular talent, and Jean Smith has proved once again that she has it."--Sylvia Boorstein, author of Don't Just Do Something, Sit There

The third of Jean Smith's Beginner's Guides focuses on the Buddha's Eightfold Path--the concepts central to practicing the Buddha's teachings in daily life. The eight steps on the path are: right understanding, thought, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration. Smith explains exactly what the Buddha had in mind, using translations of his own words and then elucidating them for us. Throughout the book are wonderful quotes from a broad range of Buddhist teachers, giving a taste of the very best each of them has to offer. The Beginner's Guide to Walking the Buddha's Eightfold Path is a prescription for happiness, not just for overcoming suffering, which is how many people think of Buddhism. Here is a book for Buddhists of every tradition.

Synopsis:

Jean Smith is one of today's most popular writers on the basic teachings of Buddhism. She speaks from a student's point of view and readers appreciate her ability to share their perspective. In her new book, she takes the Buddha's Eightfold Path, - right understanding, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration - and explains exactly what the Buddha had in mind in each instance. She shows how to walk the path at home, at work, and in the world at large. The BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO WALKING THE BUDDHA'S EIGHTFOLD PATH is a prescription for happiness, not just for overcoming suffering. Throughout the text Smith sprinkles wonderful quotations from a broad range of Buddhist teachers, giving a taste of the very best each of them has to offer. As in the other books in the series, a helpful glossary and an extensive reading list are included.
