Basic Buddhist Philosophy

Postby texastea » Wed Apr 16, 2014 12:33 am

Hey everyone.

I am searching for some books on basic or intro into Buddhist philosophy. I've read some things on Mindstreaming or "stream of conciousness" and would like to learn more about it. Thanks.

Buddha's Teaching by Narada Mahathera is my hand book.
Start from chapter 15:

Thanks. this is all very helpful. I'm more interest in a book on Buddhist moral and philosophies, however I am not leaving out the actual teachings themselves.
