Für alle, die unerschrocken wie der Buddha selbst sind. Wie hilft ein echter Zen-Meister - nicht die milde lächelnden Cartoonfiguren, sondern ein echter Meister - anderen Menschen, wenn er mit seinem eigenen Schmerz beschäftigt ist? Wie meditiert er, wenn seine Welt auseinanderbricht? Ist seine Meditation in diesen Momenten etwas wertvolles oder nur eine Flucht? Brad Warner schildert in schonungsloser Offenheit ein Jahr seines Lebens, in dem seine Mutter und seine Großmutter starben, er seinen Traumjob verlor und seine Ehe scheiterte. Gleichzeitig beschreibt er gewohnt witzig und wortgewandt, wie die Lehren Buddhas ihm halfen, mit all diesen Ereignissen fertigzuwerden und auch ein mildes Nicht-Eso-Lächeln zu entwickeln.

Siddhartha Guatama, the son of a Nepalese raja, was said to have lived a life of ease until the age of 30, when he gave himself over to years of contemplation, denying himself the riches he had once enjoyed, and finally reached a state of enlightenment while sitting beneath a tree. From that point on he was known as Buddha, the Awakened, and became a wandering teacher, sharing his beliefs with others. In The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Life of Buddha, Victoria Urubshurow, an expert in religious biography, takes us back to the China, Greece, and the Middle East of Buddha's birth as well as his native India, circa 650-350 B.C.E. Guatama wasn't the first Buddha, but he certainly became the most significant one.
