For those new to Buddhism, trying to learn and understand the religion can be confusing, complex, and overwhelming especially when you don’t have a lot of time.  That’s where our “Buddhism Starter Pack” comes in!

Alan Peto and Los Angeles Sanathavihari Bhikkhu introduce Buddhism and explain Buddhist teachings and beliefs in this new book meant for beginners. This short and simple “guide” introduces the Buddhist religion, core teachings, beliefs, practices, and concepts.

Listen to a podcast by Alan Peto and Sanathavihari Bhikkhu about this book and Buddhism: 

Buddhism in 10 Steps features ten one-page explanations of key Buddhist teachings and other topics to give you a solid footing in the religion. You will find purposely short paragraphs, bullet points, and bolding of key points and words throughout the book. Also included are “how-to” articles and a variety of supplemental information in the appendixes.

Several beautiful Buddhist pictures can also be found throughout the book introducing you to the world of different Buddhist traditions and Buddhist art.

(Book examples above are from the PDF book version on Gumroad)

In addition to the eBook, you also get three complimentary infographics by Alan providing a quick reference of Buddhism, Buddhist meditation, and a quick daily Buddhist practice (these infographics can also be found in Alan’s Buddhist Graphics Super Pack).
