Book Launch “Las tres joyas. El buda, su enseñanza y la comunidad”, by Agustín Pániker

Presentació del llibre

Las tres joyas is a didactical introduction to the rich world of Buddhism. It is conceived for a broad public: from experimented practicers to people who simply would like more specific knowledge on the 3 great lines or «jewels» of Buddhism: the figure of the awakened one (Buddha), teachings (Dharma) and the community of followers (Samgha).

With a direct and attainable style, Pániker first deepens into the historical character Gautama Siddharta and how he becomes Buddha. Later, he goes through the essential concepts of Buddhist philosophies (suffering, impermanent, nirvana, emptiness, absence of the "I", interdependence, etc). Finally he approaches the fascinating history of the community, from its indic origines, to its expansion –and transformations– around Southeast Asia (under the form of Theravada Buddhism), Far East (Mahayana), the Tibetan world (Vajrayana) and in the contemporary West.
