Buddhism is the fastest-growing religion in Australia. For the many people who are interested in learning more about it, here is a primer on Buddhism and Buddhist practice written in a clear and simple manner, with an engaging, gentle humour and flavour. Adrienne Howley's purpose is to demystify Buddhism, stripping away the layers of ritual and iconography that have grown up around it over the centuries, and to present the original, basic tenets and practices in a way that will be appealing to Western, and especially Australian, readers.

About the Author:

The Venerable Adrienne Howley was ordained in 1982 by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In 1993 she took the highest ordination vows possible from a Vietnamese Buddhist master, becoming one of the very few Western women in the world to have done so. Now in her early seventies, she lives in a small rural town north of Sydney, Australia, where she devotes her time to Buddhist practice and teaching, as well as doing volunteer work in a local hospice.

From AudioFile:

Buddhism seems a mystery to many Westerners, and a comfortable philosophy to others who have adopted it as their own. This book examines the history of Buddhism and provides a glimpse of its basic precepts with clarity and objectivity. Diedre Rubenstein is an adept guide. She narrates with a detached conviction and sincerity consistent with the teachings she imparts. She sets a pace that does not lag yet allows for consideration of the content, and approaches the personal anecdotes of the author with quiet humor. The style of the writing and the narration work together to make this an accessible introduction to Buddhism for newcomers and a text with fruit for meditation for practitioners.
