FREE NIRVANA! Ancient Wisdom for Uncertain Times

http://fora.tv/2009/07/28/The_Complete_Idiots_Guide_to_Buddhism_Gary_Gach

Ancient wisdom traditions have deep resonance in these uncertain times — not that there’s more suffering than ever before but that more people are aware of suffering. Now that humans are capable of relieving needless suffering, we’re discovering our positive potentials for great happiness and innate goodness. (¿Have you heard the saying? “Train your mind and change your brain!”) Might you already be a bit Buddhist, and not yet realize it?

Gary Gach discusses nirvana, everyday practice, mindfulness, breath, and other topics lovingly addressed in his Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buddhism (3rd edition) to an audience at Book Passage, Corte Madera, CA, 28 July 2009.
