The Five-Minute Buddhist Books

Announcements on the future of DB


The End of the Beginning?

As I do a quick mental inventory, I’m thinking we’ve covered most of what I would consider ‚Äúessential basic Buddhism.‚Äù It may be just about time to start covering more ‚Äúintermediate‚Äù topics. Before we start that, I want to make sure we’ve covered all the basics. So today, I’m going to put out another call for questions.

Have I missed a subject that interests you?
Is any topic that I’ve covered unclear or maybe too shallow?
Questions on anything?
Do you have any inspiring stories or personal thoughts you’d like to share?

Coming Soon…

I’m hoping to get enough reader questions and calls for topic elaboration to cover the rest of July, and then start the ‚ÄúDaily Buddhism: Book Two‚Äù in August. When we do start more advanced topics, what would you like to see?

Every Monk Has His Bowl

And once again, I need to mention that on the website, there is a button labeled “Donate.” Buddhists around the world have survived for 2500 years on donations and gifts from others. Who am I to try to break that tradition? If you have enjoyed the emails and podcasts so far, please “drop something in the box.”

And have a great weekend!

  • I suppose I’m interested in the point of mediation and the relationship between body and mind in Buddhism… is there a divide?

    Re “Every Monk Has His Bowl”
    I was under the impression that begging bowls were carried by Monks only!
    Have you been elevated lately?

    As someone is relatively new to Buddhism, I have read about the sixth precept of not eating untimely meals. What does this mean to a western Buddhist?
