Summary

Want to get more out of your yoga class? Explore the teachings of the Tao Te Ching? Or are you looking to achieve the Zen wisdom that makes basketball coach Phil Jackson such a success? This examination of the ancient beliefs of Asia takes the mystery out of Eastern thought. Targeted for Westerners, this enlightening program is sophisticated in content, yet easy to follow. It provides a thorough account of the histories and beliefs of Eastern philosophies, as well as a "quick take" on the practices of the various religions.
This is the one source for everything you want to know about Eastern traditions. It includes discussions on the tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shintoism, and much more.
This Best Guide also elaborates on many of the Eastern practices that Westerners find most compelling, such as tantric sex, the martial arts, and feng shui. And, it explores the connection between Asian beliefs and Western writers like Alan Watts and Deepak Chopra, and Western seekers like the Beatles and Richard Gere. Whether you're new to Eastern philosophies or are a seasoned practitioner, this program will both educate and captivate you.

Good discussion

This book provided a good and relatively interesting discussion of the eastern religions. It illuminated the different branches within each of these religions, their history, their differences, their similarities, etc. It compared eastern to western thinking and deepened my understanding of the religion as well as the people who practice it.
