Buddhism for the Lay Practitioner

Not to do any evil; To cultivate good; To purify one's own mind: This is the teaching of the Buddhas. -- Dhammapada 183

Welcome to Buddhism for the Lay Practitioner. I have put together a collection of resources for those who are interested in exploring Buddhism, from an admittedly Theravada viewpoint. The Buddhist Directory contains links to some of the best sites about Buddhism on the Internet.  The Householder Sutta Page will give those interested in the teachings of the Buddha a place to begin.  It is designed for both lay practitioners and others who are curious to learn about day-to-day Buddhism for the laity. I have created a page dedicated to the importance of sila (virtue) to our practice. I have added a shrine room where visitors can spend a few quiet moments. I have written a small piece about how I came to Buddhism and what it means to me. There is a page outlining some of the teachings about meditation. I have now included links to "Good Questions, Good Answers On Buddhism" by Venerable S. Dhammika and "What Buddhists Believe" by Venerable Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda. Finally, for those who are interested in becoming a Buddhist,I have included a link to "How to Become a Buddhist (A DIY Guide)" by Lee Yu Ban. I hope that all who enter here will find the peace they seek.  May all beings be free of suffering.

Please note: I will no longer be supporting the Canadian Buddhist List. If you are interested in finding information about Buddhism in Canada, please go to the aptly named Buddhism in Canada site.
