Description - The Naked Buddha Speaks by Adrienne Howley
The long-awaited companion to The Naked Buddha. The Naked Buddha, a timely, down-to-earth and highly accessible beginners' guide to Buddhism, struck a chord with Australian and international readers alike. In The Naked Buddha Speaks, feisty Buddhist nun Adrienne Howley continues her mission to demystify Buddhism by showing how anyone can integrate its practices into their everyday life. She also answers the questions many of her readers have raised, such as- How can Buddhism make me happy? How does a Buddhist cope with grief and loss? How do I practise generosity when I'm having a bad day? How can I move away from greed and hatred? How can I change my expectations? I want to meditate, but how do I start? In her warm and humorous style, Adrienne Howley unlocks the original basic tenets and practices of Buddhism, now the fastest-growing religion in Australia, and shows us how we can apply its principles in useful and meaningful ways to our lives.
