If you want to learn how Buddhism can SKYROCKET your peace and happiness in daily life then keep reading... Do you want to learn the fundamentals of Buddhism? Do you want to learn it in a PRACTICAL manner that actually improves your day to day life? Do you want to learn it in an easy to understand manner? Buddhism now is more popular than it has been in decades, the Buddha's incredible teachings are starting to get the recognition they deserve. What has happened recently is a wave of books that only go over the theory of Buddhism and don't cover the most important aspect- how Buddhism can transform your daily life and revolutionize you as a person. As a practicing Buddhist, I came to the realization that while memorizing the 4 Noble Truths is great, what's more important is living the teachings, and allowing them to permeate into your life. Not only that, but for us Westerners we need a slightly different approach then the Monks, we have busy and demanding lives and Buddhism can still help us live in harmony! We've all seen the studies on Mindfulness, such as the 2011 study in the Psychiatry research showed how Mindfulness Meditation can literally change our brain chemistry or how a 2009 Harvard study proved Mindfulness can help fight disease through the 'relaxation effect.' But, this won't have any impact on you until you start PRACTICING Mindfulness and Meditation, memorizing the 5 hindrances doesn't have quite the same effect unfortunately. Anyways, here is just a slither of what you will discover inside... - The 1 Practice the Buddha recommended that will make you the Happiest version of yourself! - How to use the 4 Noble truths to ELIMINATE suffering in your life - What 'Awakening' is and how to actually awaken yourself! - The 5 Secrets Buddhist Monks use to become effortlessly happy every single day - Why this 1 daily practice will help you find serenity in the most crazy times of your life - A simple, yet incredibly effective, meditation technique to help you relieve stress and feel more at peace even if you've NEVER meditated before - 7 Practical tips to help you free yourself from the tyranny of your own mind - The truth about Karma and how it can genuinely help you transform your life (Most westerners don't know this) - How to practice Buddhism on your own terms, in your own way (Remember it's a personal practice!) - Why more average westerners are becoming Buddhist than ever before AND increasing their happiness levels at the same time - What Buddhists know about true peace that you don't - How to live your life in the present moment with the help of these 5 Practices - Tips and Strategies for making all of the teachings part of your 'Everyday Buddhism' practice - The Startling truth about why the most important part of Buddhism is the PRACTICAL applications of the teachings - And that is barely even scratching the surface! Even if you have no idea what Karma really is or don't even have a clue what this whole Mindfulness craze is all about, this book outlines an easy to digest way how the incredible teachings of the Buddha can transform your life!

If you want to discover Buddhism in a simple and effective Way, then keep reading! Buddhism has been catching the attention and interest of a lot of people lately. In a world where everything goes fast and is constantly evolving, this ancient philosophy can help to slow down and live a more present and fulfilling life. However, there is a problem: Buddhism seems extremely complicated from the outside. Those who have never studied it think that it is impossible for the average Joe to make his way through all the rules and laws of this philosophy. Truth be told, Buddhism is not as complicated as contemporary Gurus pretend it to be. Due to the powerful teachings shared by the Buddha, Buddhism has been purposely passed on as a complex and difficult philosophy, while in reality, it could not be further from the truth. In fact, Buddhism is the only religion that does not have a defined set of rules that the practitioners must follow. On the contrary, it provides people with moral standards and ethical etiquette, that the single individual can interpret and use as he pleases. Making Buddhism as simple as possible is the aim of this book. Here is what you will discover: The big difference between Buddhism and all other religions and how it can be crucial for your personal development The secret healthy lifestyle of monks and how you can apply it in your own life The teachings of the most important Buddhist personality of the previous century - hint: it is not the Dalai Lama The secret foods recommended by the Buddha himself for a longer and happier life The hidden meditation techniques that can help you move toward a more present life; Much more... To get the most out of this book and out of Buddhism you are not required to adhere to a beliefs system. This makes Buddhism suitable for Atheists and those who already practice another religion as well. The beauty of the teachings of the Buddha is exactly this: they are a message for everyone and with this book, we wanted to share it as clearly as possible.
