Buddha and Buddhism for the 21st Century
Buddhism and mindfulness are an increasingly important force in our society. They speak to a deep need in all of us to connect to our inner wisdom, compassion, and calm. Whether you participate in a formal Buddhist practice such as the serene elegance of Zen or the colorful majesty of Tibetan Buddhism or simply practice mindfulness meditation, you can tap into the benefits of this millennia old set of practices. Buddhism is more about wisdom, focus, and peace rather than a set of beliefs. Buddhism can be your religion or your can strive to be like a Buddha yourself—awakening to your life in the present moment. Of course, you can do both too!
