hey um, this is a ridiculous question but like. what are books or websites about Buddhism youd recommend to soneone who knows literally nothing about it? im interested because ive seen you talk about it before, so thank you
nah youre fine. i have a buddhism page if you wanna read my paraphrasing of stuff ive learned, but other than that i recommend buddhanet for like a really mediocre introduction to buddhism (i say mediocre because im not a fan of the way they express things sometimes), and if you wanna inquire further i actually recommend wikipedia because it gives a pretty good overview of the philosophical foundations of most practices and concepts. Thich Nhat Hanh is really popular and so is Pema Chodron but theyre more on the non-specific spiritual side of things that makes buddhism palatable to the west as a secular practice of self-help. if you want to learn more about the material practices of buddhists i recommend going to a nearby temple or finding some online buddhist community. every person youll talk to online will always recommend finding a teacher to talk to face-to-face and tbh i agree with them.
