This is the perfect beginner's guide to Buddhism. Organised in an easy to use Question and Answer format, Manuel answers the many common questions people have about Buddhism, such as: – "e;Do you have a book like the Bible or Koran?"e; – "e;What do Buddhists believe?"e; – "e;Are there core teachings?"e; – "e;Do you believe in a god?"e; – "e;Do some people have good karma and some bad?"e; – "e;Why do the monks, nuns and priests shave their heads?"e; Manuel, also, intertwines her personal experiences as a dharma practitioner, her life in the Sangha and her travels around the world meeting other Buddhist practitioners, throughout the book. Included are illustrations by the author in her hand-tinted trademark charcoal and pencil style.
