Buddhism does not need faithCan be atheist or agnostic to follow the Buddha’s teachings, without believing in reincarnation or organized religionHe’s a man of confession.In his classic Buddhism, Without Beliefs, Stephen Batchelor offered a profound, secular approach to the teachings of the Buddha who struck an emotional chord with Western readersNow, with genius and audacity of thought, he paints a first portrait of the historical Buddha,-said the author from the unique point of view as a former Buddhist monk and modern researcherThe drawing of the original Canon Pali, stopping the collection of Buddhist speeches compiled after Buddha’s death by his followers, Batchelor shows us Buddha as a being of flesh and blood of man who looks at life in a radically new wayBatchelor also reveals the trials of daily life and the doubts of his own devotion travel-meets the Dalai Lama in India, to training as a Zen monk in Korea, to find his way as a layman of the Buddhist teacher living in FranceBoth controversial and deeply personal, Stephen Batchelor is a refreshing doctrine-free, informed account life is an essential reading for anyone interested in Buddhism.
