Elements of Buddhist philosophy are quite popular today, yet many do not understand Buddhism. Many Buddhists mix this religion that came out of early Hinduism with their other traditional folk religions. Buddhism at its core is an attempt to solve the problem of suffering by a system of denial and emotional disengagement. In this small book, Lewis Meyer explains the background to Buddhism, explains its practices and invites readers to reconsider their commitment to it. He calls them to consider a more provable and hopeful set of beliefs.
