In his book What the Buddha Taught, the Theravadin scholar Walpola Rahula said, "According to the teaching of the Buddha, the idea of a self is an imaginary, false belief which has no corresponding reality, and it produces harmful thoughts of 'me' and 'mine', selfish desire, craving, attachment, hatred, ill-will, conceit.

    A great book to start with if one wants to understand Buddhism. The word used for the Buddha’s teachings in Sanskrit is dharma, which means simply “the way things are”. In this book, Lama Ole Nydahl explains who the Buddha was, and why his teachings have proven helpful to people’s lives up until the modern day.   In the West, for about the last hundred and fifty years, white Western males have pretty much controlled what they see as the canon of Buddhist scripture, or doctrine. We’ve been normed in the West to orthodoxy — looking at texts and scriptures as being the authority for doctrine.

    And there is another major difference between the teachings and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in Asia as opposed to the West, and that is, if you are living in any major city in the West, you are likely to have various lamas of all the different orders passing through town for their weekend events. From Greek kings to nineteenth-century adventurers, from missionaries to monks, the encounter of Buddhism and the West is filled with intriguing personalities in Awaking of the West. -- The Awakening of the West is an insightful and elegantly written history chronicling the developing relationship between Buddhism and Western culture.
