The word Buddha means “one who is awake”. The Buddha awakened to Enlightenment, the dawning of perfect clarity, unceasing compassion and tireless energy. Rousing us as though from sleep or a dream, the Buddha’s teachings can help us develop a clearer mind and a more compassionate heart. In this accessible introduction, Tejananda alerts us to the Buddha’s wake-up call, illustrating how the Buddhist path can bring us to a truer understanding of life.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
