About the author:
Sensei Morris Sekiyo Sullivan first became interested in Buddhism and meditation as a teenager in the 1970s and studied philosophy, religion and psychology in college before receiving his MBA from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. After exploring Zen and some Tibetan practices, he studied meditation and ordained for a monastic retreat at a Thai Theravada monastery. He then took a nonsectarian approach as a dharma teacher and was inducted as a Sensei in the Bright Dawn Center for Oneness Buddhism.
Sensei Sullivan lives in DeLand, Florida where he leads Volusia Buddhist Fellowship meetings, meets with inmates at Tomoka Correctional Institution and speaks regularly at Unitarian Universalist churches in Florida.
Wisdom; Compassion; Serenity
First Steps on the Buddhist Path
M. Sekiyo Sullivan
This book gives a thorough but concise guide to Buddhist practice. M. Sekiyo Sullivan, Sensei with Bright Dawn Center for Oneness Buddhism, helps readers understand foundations of Buddhism like the Noble Eightfold Path, Dependent Origination, Impermanence and Not-Self by approaching them through the characteristics of the enlightened mind, wisdom, compassion and serenity.
Rather than simply giving descriptions and explanations, however, Sensei Sullivan gives commonsense guidance on how to put these teachings into practice in everyday life.
The final section includes a wealth of information designed to help people develop a meditation practice.
