Karen Armstrong:

Buddha - new book

ID: 5136889e6cf4f3461aeac4aae39043e2

Buddha revolutionized the religious ideas of his time to advocate a new way of living. Little is known about him save for a collection of ancient writings that fuse history, biography and myth. Karen Armstrong distils from these the key events of Buddha's life. Buddhism is a faith that commands over 100 million followers throughout the world. Buddha stands with Christ, Confucius and Mohammed as someone who revolutionized the religious ideas of his time to advocate a new way of living. All that is known about Buddha comes from a collection of ancient writings that fuse history, biography and myth. Karen Armstrong distils from these the key events of Buddha´s life: his birth as Siddhartha Gotama in the fifth century BC and his abandonment of his wife and son; his attainment of enlightenment under the Banyan tree (the moment he became a buddha, or enlightened one; his political influence; the divisions among his followers; and his serene death. Armstrong also introduces the key tenets of Buddhism: she explains the doctrine of anatta (no-soul) and the concepts of kamma (actions), samsara (keeping going), dhamma (a law or teaching that reflects the fundamental principles of existence) and the idealised state of nibbana (literally the ´cooling of the ego´). Since it promotes no personal god, Buddhism, writes Armstrong, ´is essentially a psychological faith´. In our own age of secular anxiety, she shows that it has profound lessons to teach about selflessness and the simple life. Karen Armstrong´s short book is a magnificent introduction to the life and thought of this most influential of spiritual thinkers.
