What is the Buddha’s Brain Book?
This is a book that goes deep into the most essential things in life like happiness, love and wisdom. The three virtues together are all there is in this world to get the most out of life, as an individual.
And the book helps you understand each virtue very well and show you practical ways through which you can attain them.
It is basically focused in changing your mind as this is the foundation of every mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically successful person.
The book also goes into more specific aspects of these virtues like attention and concentration, which are key to a well balanced life, how to achieve them and many others.
Ideally, this book is more of a self help and spiritual awakening guide than anything else.
And it compliments the mind practice I have always recommended, the Mind Twist practice for happiness, love, wisdom and all other great virtues.
A Quick Peep At the Book
Well, in general, the book is quite detailed to the point of getting a complete look into your brain and the way the mystery of emotions start, develop and make impact on various situations in your typical day.
Essentially, there are 4 main parts, other than the introduction and the conclusion. I am going to try to give you the gist of each part of the book in the fewest words possible to give you the idea of what you will be getting yourself into.
So here we go.
Introduction – This chapter gives the basic information behind the writing of the book. It gives the health and spiritual benefits you are going to take out of the book, the vast research and findings, and the neuroscience involved.
• 1st part (The Cause of Suffering) – This part is divided into two chapters and some useful advise (bonus chapter) on how to end the suffering in your life.
Here you will learn comprehensively about your brain and how it works, how your emotions come up and how suffering comes about in relation to them, and a good deal of information on anger.
In summary, you learn almost everything about your suffering and how to bring it down.
• 2nd Part (The Cause of Happiness) – This part handles happiness pretty deeply.
There are about 8 chapters going into most critical situations that display or threaten happiness in life.
Here you will learn in detail about making real goodness part of yourself, knowing and leveraging your mental sanctuary, a good self help exercise on page 89, gaining mental strength, equanimity, and a “sad” end to realizing happiness.
• 3rd part (Love) – This section contains 3 chapters that speak about love in almost all sense.
The main theme in it is loving folks and treating them as part of our “being” as human beings, having compassion for others but standing firm on what you believe and loving without limits, as well as overlooking insults.
• 4th Part (Wisdom) – This is where the fun stuff for intellects and spiritualists is.
You get 3 chapters that describe the path of wisdom by learning how to still your mind and gaining full power of attention and concentration, as I have discussed in this site and the mind twist practice as well.
You will get a few tips and affirmations to help you gain control over your mind and cultivate good habits.
How to Make The Most of the Book
You are getting the option to work with a hard copy, an audiobook, mp3 CDs and other formats.
The best way to get much value off of it is to:
1. Read it generally – This will help you get the whole idea behind the book and what it stands for. Here I suggest listening to the audiobook (or mp3 version).
2. Then read it word for word, using the hard copy – Take important notes and writing down the practical techniques to improve upon the discussed areas.
3. Put into Practice – After you write down any helpful tip or training, implement it immediately. Slide it into your schedule and work on it seriously with determination.

What is Included in the Program

So you will just have to choose the one you want and work with it.
I also got some peoples’ user feedback on the book and I have to say it really came in handy. Most people have rated it well and said they had a good mind changing experience with it.
In fact, the stats of the ratings for the book will show you how great it was. The highest ratings are 4 stars and 5 stars.
I also have to give it a thumbs up as most of my personal discovery prior to knowing of the book matches what it is in it. This means it is working with good genuinely helpful stuff.
Cost and Free Downloads
The cost you pay for the book depends on the format you choose to use. But the price plays from $5 to $20. I recommend getting a variety of formats especially the audiobook and the hard copy for best experience.
The place I also recommend you buy it from is Amazon.
There are many stores that are selling it but personally I don’t trust them as they may be counterfeit and lacking other parts. It is something I have experienced. Please be careful on that.
