What is Buddhism?
What is the Buddhist-inspired life?

Buddhism is a path to personal transformation and enlightenment. It’s mind training. It’s a way to understand and heal mental pain. It’s learning to befriend yourself. It’s deepening your compassion for yourself and others. It’s freeing yourself from what’s weighing you down – while it awakens you to a fuller, more aware and satisfying life.

To get started, all you have to do is want to live a better life. Buddhism teaches that by changing yourself, you can benefit others in your life. You already have this ability within you.Buddhism shows you how to bring it out. 

When you subscribe, you’ll learn about Buddhism and Buddhist-inspired living from the world’s most respected Buddhist teachers and people like you who have changed their lives. You’ll learn how to transform suffering into peace, joy, and tranquility.

You’ll meet people whose stories of personal transformation will inspire you, and you’ll learn Buddhist principles and practices from great Buddhist writers, like . . .

  Thich Nhat Hanh on five practices for nurturing happiness…

   Pema Chödrön on how to move forward once you’ve hit bottom…

  Sharon Salzberg on cultivating calm in the midst of chaos…

  Jack Kornfield on the psychology of original goodness…

  Norman Fischer on aging with grace . . .

You’ll meet creative artists like Herbie Hancock & Wayne Shorter on a manifesto for young artists . . .

It’s bright. Colorful. Upbeat. It takes you to the doors of self-liberation and teaches you the practices that can take you through them. It presents Buddhist practice in clear, practical language that you can read and understand without a specialized vocabulary.
