Books

For more than 2,500 years, Buddhism has inspired people to develop profound wisdom about their own nature through a training of the mind. The goal is a mind that is light, free, energetic and present – free from heavy emotions and thoughts. So the focus is development of human qualities – not an all-powerful creator.

Such a quality of life is the result of a spiritual awakening taught by the Buddha, where the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path are the core.

And those who pick up this training start corresponding development, gradually and over a longer period of time, and get results according to their own efforts and starting point.

But Buddhism is profound, complex, challenging and with a long time horizon.

Good and inspiring books are important for this training, and we have made a small overview that can help you along the way!
