Description
Gary Gach discusses his book, “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buddhism.” He begins by explaining that there are over 5 million Buddhists in the world, and many people convert because it is compatible with the beliefs of different religions. He describes that the Buddha was a real figure who lived around 500 B.C.E in India. Gach talks about how he included an entire chapter on food, and the rituals and concentration that Buddhists practice while eating. He describes his own conversion to Buddhism and that he had a vision of an interconnected being at age 6. He ends the interview by discussing how many Buddhists feel more enlightened while meditating in a group.
