the practical buddhist : essentials

the essentials


Just the essentials

That’s what The Practical Buddhist is about.

Leo Babauta, blogger over at and author of our elegant WordPress theme, said it best when he wrote:

“Focus on the essentials and jettison the rest.”

I’ve been writing about Practical Buddhism for a number of years and in each post, I tend to focus on the essential. Buddhism has been around for over two millennia and it’s become very convoluted and complex with the development of various schools and traditions.

I don’t do complex

Instead, TPB focuses on what works for me and maybe for you, too.

Whether it’s through writing blog posts or books, TPB always focuses on the essential.
