To walk in the footsteps of the Buddha we need a clear and thorough guide to the essential principles of Buddhism. Whether we have just begun our journey or are a practitioner with more experience, What is the Dharma? is an indispensable exploration of the Buddha’s teachings as found in the main Buddhist traditions.
Constantly returning to the question ‘How can this help me?’ Sangharakshita examines a variety of fundamental principles, including karma and rebirth, nirvana and shunyata, conditioned co-production, impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, insubstantiality, ethics, meditation and wisdom.
The result is an informative, refreshing, and inspiring book that lays before us the essential Dharma, timeless and universal, in a clear and practical manner.
Urgyen Sangharakshita, the English-born Buddhist teacher and founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order is one of the most influential and respected figures in Western Buddhism.
