The Practical Buddhist
Buddhism without the robes and ritual
The Practical Buddhist is for anyone searching for a more meaningful way of living and a clearer understanding of what it means to practice Buddhism without robes, ceremony, or ritual.
For nearly 30 years I searched for a secular way to live an ethical and meaningful life apart from the confines of organized religion. My experiences within Christianity and later, Kriya Yoga, led me to conclude that religion wasn’t the answer, that religion was created by man in his search for a more meaningful existence.
