B Cumming

A Secular Western approach to Buddhism, Meditation, Life & Actuality
This book explores the core teachings of the Buddha in relation to a number of different themes and concepts that relate to Dharma practice whilst living within a 21st century western culture. It aims to eliminate the ‘ism’ out of Buddhism in order that the reader can undertake a personal inquiry from the perspective of simplicity and practicality, without the hindrance of institutionalized religious dogma, blind belief, superstitions, cultural world views, or anything that could be considered to be supernatural or paranormal.
