Blog

Hello and welcome to my blog!

This blog will be about Buddhism. ‘Oh! not another one,’ I hear you say. Well, yes but…

There are many great blogs on Buddhism as a religion and even more on Buddhism as a philosophy. I am writing about Buddhism as a way of life, which means there is no Buddhist jargon or dogma. It is not based in the metaphysical world, but has its feet planted firmly on this planet. It is easy to follow and practical. I use the Buddha’s early teachings as the blogs foundation, and explain them in a way that is relevant to your life today. You will find some of what I am going to write about in my books, ‘The Best Way To Catch A Snake’ and ‘Life’s Meandering Path.’ You may also follow Buddhism Guide on Facebook and Twitter. I hope you enjoy the blog. Feel free to give me feedback, as I love to hear other people’s views.

Changing Your Behaviour

What I'm going to talk about today is a subject that I don't usually talk much about, because people seem to think it's a magical or mystical thing or it's handed down to us from some god or a higher being; none of these are true. I am talking about karma. Many people...
