With depth, honesty, and clarity, "Buddhism Is Not What You Think" focuses on the single most essential impulse in any serious spiritual inquiry - the desire to awaken. It's a book about being awake - about being fully human. The Buddha was not interested in theology or cosmology. He didn't speak on these subjects, and in fact, would not answer questions on them. His primary concerns were psychological, moral, and highly practical ones. This forms the basis of a series of engaging teaching chapters that offer readers an intensely practical, accessible path to learning what it truly means to be awake in every aspect of daily living.
