If you’re seeking to enhance your well-being in a healthy, truly natural, highly sustainable way, then my no-nonsense guide to Buddhism and eastern philosophy is for you…

Why exactly is Buddhism (along with other eastern philosophies) such an amazing way to improve your life?

Buddhists have been successfully implementing techniques for bringing happiness into people’s lives for millennia. Recent research indicates that Buddhism – as well as other ancient Eastern traditions such as Taoism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism – offers an incredible path towards living a better life.

But here’s the trick…

… in order to benefit from these often abstract philosophies, their teachings need to be broken down in a way which is accessible and easy-to-understand to those looking to benefit.

Which is where my book, The No-Nonsense Guide to Using Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy For A Better Life comes in.

By unwrapping these iconic teachings, this unique 96 page eBook filters out the mystery of these philosophies and shows you how to improve all aspects of daily living, including your relationships, emotional resilience and state of mind.

About the eBook

lachlan cropped e1564119381910 Discover the Buddhist Secrets for Living a Happier, Calmer, and More Rewarding Life

By Lachlan Brown

I’m the founder of Hack Spirit, a publishing company that provides practical advice and books for living a better life. With an email list of over 30,000 subscribers, we’re continuously providing our readers with evidence-based, no-nonsense eBooks on mindfulness and practical psychology.

In this Book, I will walk you through your first meditation, and give you some straightforward but powerful exercises to help you be more mindful every day. Together, we’re going to work to strengthen your relationships, increase your emotional resilience, and systematically train your mind.

While self-help in the western world has traditionally been rooted in more complicated processes like visualization, empowerment workshops, and a pursuit of materialism, the Buddhists have always known a better way…

… that the attainment of clarity and happiness is about truly living in the present moment, which in turn, actually makes it much easier to obtain what you want in life.

In the hustle and bustle of modern society, achieving quiet peace-of-mind isn’t always so easy – in fact, it’s often quite difficult. While there are plenty of faraway resorts you can visit to cool your mental jets, these places are mostly temporary reprieves. You spend a week or two at one, start to feel better, and when you get back to your everyday life those same stresses swarm your mind all over again.

That brings us back to the beauty of Buddhism.

Because by learning and adhering to the lessons in The No-Nonsense Guide to Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy, you’ll learn you don’t have to travel to a remote cave, mountain, or desert to achieve a serene sense of calm.

The relaxed, quiet confidence you seek is already inside you. All you have to do is learn to tap into it.

Within my book you’ll discover the core components of achieving happiness, anywhere at any time through:

  • Creating a state of mindfulness throughout the day
  • Learning how to meditate
  • Fostering healthier relationships
  • Healing from pain and trauma
  • Unburdening yourself from intrusive negative thoughts.

And while we primarily focus on Buddhist teachings throughout the book – particularly as they relate to mindfulness and meditation – we also provide key insights and ideas from Taoism, Jainism, Sikhism and Hinduism.

Think of it this way…

we’ve taken 5 of the world’s most powerful philosophies for achieving happiness, and captured their most relevant and effective teachings – while filtering out the confusing jargon. We then shaped them into a high-practical, easy-to-follow guide for improving your life.


Who this eBook is for

If you do want to live a better life by consistently applying the timeless wisdom of Buddhism…

… would love a practical, accessible guide which filters out the esoteric confusion often associated with Buddhism and other eastern philosophies. One that presents valuable wisdom in a clear, easy-to-follow way…

… and dream of living a life happier, calmer and satisfying than what you’re experiencing now, then this eBook is absolutely for you.

What you’ll learn and discover

  • The Power of Mindfulness – Discover how mindfulness is your direct connection to greater happiness (I tell the story of how Harvard researcher, Matt Killingsworth, created an app which concretely shows this connection). Also learn the 6 other benefits of mindfulness proven by science.
  • 4 Incredibly Effective Ways to Achieve Mindfulness – Create a state of mindfulness anywhere, anytime through 4 incredibly effective everyday practices (Don’t like the stiffness or sluggishness of how you feel when you wake up in the morning? Practice #1 shows you how to develop a morning routine which makes you feel way more relaxed and energized).
  • Learn to Meditate (The Easy Way) – I demystify the amazing practice of meditation. I show you step-by-step the 4 main ways to meditate, including easy-to-follow tips and exercises to help you get started right away.
  • The Best Meditation Apps – I break down 6 of the most popular meditation applications so you know which one is right for you (the right app can be extremely beneficial towards developing an effective, long-term practice).
  • Improve Your Relationships – While many go their entire lives without realizing it, our relationships – family, friends, co-workers, and especially with ourselves – are the most crucial factor for our happiness. I explain how to use Buddhism to improve your relationships (and even to deal with your enemies).
  • Minimize the Harm You Cause – Discover why when we cause harm – whether to others or more particularly ourselves – we’re making it far more difficult to live a life of happiness. I’ll show you how to apply the concept of ‘doing no harm’ (a core virtue of Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism) to your daily life.
  • Rest and Heal Properly – Studies overwhelmingly show that rest and sleep are vital for keeping you healthy. You’ll learn how to apply Buddhist and Taoist techniques to your everyday life so you can achieve a level of therapeutic relaxation, which helps prevent disease and heals your body and mind.
  • The Power of Letting Go – Eastern philosophy is rooted in the understanding that it’s our attachments that tend to cause us pain. You’ll discover the seemingly contradictory link between non-attachment and stronger and happier relationships.
