Forthcoming webinar on 8th June on the topic of enlightenment

Enlightenment is what all Buddhists ultimately aim for. But what is it exactly? And how can it best be taught in the classroom? We will explore how enlightenment is understood differently in Theravada and Mahayana traditions, and the role it plays in the life of a Buddhist. This webinar is designed for school teachers (especially ages 14-18) and will interactively clarify subject knowledge, enable participants to share experience, and feature Q&A.

I wish I had this book when I was taking religion in college. This is one book that gives Buddhism in its basics and in an understandable manner. I recommend this book.

Reviewer, UK, NetGalley 


Great book. Always had interest in Buddhism and it’s rare to find a book that honours it as a way of life. This book is perfect for learning about the way of life within Buddhism.
