The Seeker’s Glossary of Buddhism: A Dictionary/Encyclopedia of Buddhism

Posted on | July 13, 2010 | 3 Comments

Seekers glossary of Buddhism ebook coverThe Seeker’s Glossary of Buddhism: A Dictionary/Encyclopedia of Buddhism is a revised and expanded edition of The Seeker’s Glossary of Buddhism. The text is a compendium of excerpts and quotations from some 350 works by monks, nuns, professors, scholars and other laypersons from nine different countries, in their own words or in translation. The editors have merely organized the material, adding a few connecting thoughts of their own for ease in reading. The ebook can be used in three ways: to find the definition of unfamiliar terms; to gain a broader understanding of specific Buddhist concepts; and also as an introduction to Buddhism. In the last instance, it is suggested that readers begin with the entry on Parables, then move on to Practice, Obstacles to Cultivation and Ten Non-Seeking Practices. Other entries of a more contemporary interest can be read with benefit by all. These include Buddhist views on: Birth Control, Organ Transplants, Vegetarianism, Universe, Immortality.
