An excellent introductory book about Buddhism is "It's Easier Than You Think" by Sylvia Boorstein. It shows how this ancient tradition comes alive in modern, everyday life.

The best website on Buddhism is Buddhanet - extensive, non-sectarian:

And the best way to benefit from Buddhism is to practice meditation. Here's a great, short video that shows you how to practice:

    As is often the case, I find myself in agreement with P'ang.

    The best overall web site for a non-sectarian understanding of Buddhism is http://www.buddhanet.net/

    This will give you a basic understanding of Buddhism and will provide you with enough insight into other various Buddhist traditions to give you a start. They have a good eBook section included several eBooks on meditation. I would take a look. http://www.buddhanet.net/ebooks_m.htm

    I hope this helps.

    Guided meditation demonstration video, meditation music, and books about Falun Gong are free to download from the URL listed below. If you need any help, contact a local practitioner in your area for free instructions. Good luck.

    Falun Gong is a unique Buddhist School, found in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi in China. About 100 million people practice in over 80 countries worldwide. Falun Gong is an ancient practice for the body, mind, and spirit based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.

    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China.

    Google loves eating words. It's Google's feeding time, you should toss in a word like Buddhism.

    Used to be a Christian. That's the sad part because you were just a Christian but u never had a personal encounter with God. How I wish you had, any way its never too late...

    Yea Buddhism is a good appealing religion. Its suits you.. :-)

    You can get everything in this world according to what suits you. But you can find the real God who can be accustomed to your desire. Because the true and One living God is "I Am Who I am" He is the same, yesterday , today and forevermore" Unchanging .....
