Essential Buddhism
We are taught today by the most prominently known Buddhist teacher - author, speaker, and spiritual leader Lama Surya Das! This is the show for you! Whether you are a practicing Buddhist, a Christian, a Muslim, or any other faith, today's show can help you learn not only about essential Buddhist practices but also about the ways that many of these practices can hep you in your every day lives.

Many of us became familiar with him through the best-selling book, Awakening the Buddha Within. Lama Surya Das helps translate ancient wisdom and practices accessible and meaningful in our every day lives. We're also dispelling some of the most common myths about Buddhism today!

We're talking about the Four Noble Truths, about the 8 Fold Path, and so much more as we delve into the ways in which you can live a happier, more authentic, and meaning-filled life!
