Q1. What book should I start with Buddhism?


Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind by the founder of San Francisco Zen Center, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, is one of the undisputed classics of Literary Buddhism. First published in 1970, the book's simple approach and plainspoken language have made it timeless.


Q2. What is appropriate for any beginner to start with Buddhism?

 

The Buddha taught that the way to free the mind from suffering is through gaining insight into what truly is. One of the tools the Buddha taught for gaining insight is mindfulness, the ability to be fully aware in each moment. You can develop mindfulness through the practice of vipassana meditation. Buddhism addresses two major types of meditation. They are different mental skills, modes of functioning or qualities of consciousness. They are called Vipassana and Samatha.


Q3. How many books are there in Hindu Mythology?

 

There are a wide variety of books or scriptures in Hinduism. These were composed in the Sanskrit language and were compiled by Vyasadeva, the literary incarnation of the Supreme Lord Krishna. The Vedic scriptures are mainly classified into two categories: Shruti and Smriti. Shruti includes the Upanishads and the four Vedas (Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda, and Atharva Veda). Smriti includes epics such as Mahabharata and Ramayana, and the 18 Puranas and 18 Upa Puranas.
