São Paulo - BRL: Terra à Vista - not for sale edition (2021)

Adequate knowledge about what Buddhism is is essential to the education and culture of any person who does not want to be simply another alienated member of a herd that walks blindly amid a technological revolution. It is possible to understand early Buddhism through modern language and knowledge and establish its relations with contemporary thought and its references. With this, it becomes possible to deepen and broaden our perception about these millennial principles' compatibility with our modern ways of living and knowing. The study required for this is quite laborious. Buddhism is a subject underlying a gigantic literary and cultural mountain. The closer we get to its original concept, the deeper and more voluminous the excavation we have to do.
Keywords Buddhism, religion, meditation, mind, karma, rebirth, eastern philosophy, soul, after life, death, gods
