Why I Am a Buddhist


  • Author : Stephen T. Asma
  • Publisher : Hampton Roads Publishing
  • Release Date : 2011-01-01
  • Genre: Philosophy
  • Pages :
  • ISBN 10 : 1612830412


Why I Am a Buddhist Book Description :

Profound and amusing, this book provides a viable approach to answering the perennial questions: Who am I? Why am I here? How can I live a meaningful life? For Asma, the answers are to be found in Buddhism. There have been a lot of books that have made the case for Buddhism. What makes this book fresh and exciting is Asma’s iconoclasm, irreverence, and hardheaded approach to the subject. He is distressed that much of what passes for Buddhism is really little more than “New Age mush.” He asserts that it is time to “take the California out of Buddhism.” He presents a spiritual practice that does not require a belief in creeds or dogma. It is a practice that is psychologically sound, intellectually credible, and esthetically appealing. It is a...
