"All human unhappiness comes from not facing reality squarely, exactly as it is." It may be wise, but is it Buddha? Quotes from the Buddha are everywhere: on Facebook, Instagram, coffee mugs, posters. There's only one problem: the Buddha didn't actually say most of them. In this humorous and informative book, the Scottish-born teacher Bodhipaksa takes these fake Buddha quotes as a launching point for a discussion on what the Buddha really did say, and it is a great entry point for those interested in learning more about Buddhism—what it is, and what it isn't.
