Free Buddhist Books!

People love free books! Now you can have four free titles sent to you if you want to learn more about Buddhism. Unlike going to a library, you can read these books at your leisure as there's no due date! Or you can order very low-priced e-book versions and keep them in your online or electronic bookshelf.

Studying Buddhism is something that anyone with even a tiny bit of interest can do as it benefits not only you but those around you. Many of us are influenced by the holidays and have to do more than usual. Does a hectic pace benefit us? Do we have a calm and peaceful mind?

If we want to we can have a more peaceful outlook. Lama Yeshe's THE PEACEFUL STILLNESS OF THE SILENT MIND should be read any time of the year, even though it may look like a Christmas song to you!

Another fine title is MAKE YOUR MIND AN OCEAN, also written by Lama Yeshe. In this book, he answers student's questions during one of his Australian teachings. Born and raised in Tibet, Lama Thubten Yeshe eventually moved to California. He established The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, an international, non-profit organization. The Foundation is devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through teaching, meditation, and community service. Lama Yeshe writes, "Tibetan Buddhism teaches you to overcome your dissatisfied mind, but to do that you have to make an effort. To put our technique into your own experience, you have to go slowly, gradually. You can't just jump right in the deep end. But if you take it easy it gets less and less difficult as time goes by."
