Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0893143375, Pamphlet)An essay on the life and teachings of Buddha and the basic tenets of Buddhism in language that is easily understandable, but beneficial to those students new to Buddhism, and those who have been following its teachings their whole lives. Buddhism is based upon the theory that ignorance is the cause of all worldly misery and that only self-knowledge and the knowledge of the relation of self to the Great Plan can combat this ignorance. Buddha taught that out of ignorance are born sin and iniquity. If the human race could see clearly, it would do right; but the blurred vision removes the incentive to right action and right thought, which are absolutely necessary to intelligent living and true spirituality. Buddha's gods were god-men, human beings who had raised themselves above the ignorance of the race, and who, sitting upon the mountain peaks, gazed upon the entire pageantry of life, seeing with that fullness which makes all things good, while man, dwelling in the valleys, sees so little that all things seem bad.
