About Alan Peto

Hi, I’m Alan, and I Explain Modern Buddhism.  

  • If you are looking to understand Buddhism in our modern world, you have come to the right place!
  • My mission is to help others understand modern Buddhism through my articles, videos, graphics, and books.
  • What is this site all about?  I wanted to understand Buddhism in a way that makes sense to me, and how it can apply to many different parts of our daily lives.  My website allows me to share what I have learned, and my thoughts, with you.
  • Are you new to Buddhism?  I would recommend you read my article Buddhism, a Quick Intro, check out myTop 5 Books for Buddhist Newbies, and explore my Basics in Buddhism series of articles.
