My name is Alan Peto  and I created Buddha Brainiac as an easy to search “Knowledge Base” to help explain Buddhism concepts in an simple and easy to understand way.  You can find an index (of tags) here which can help you find what you are looking for:  http://www.alanpeto.com/buddhabrainiac/index/   Otherwise, please check out all the categories on the main page, and click the one you would like to explore.  of course, you an also just “search” for what you are looking for.

If you are looking for more “in-depth” (and fun) articles about Buddhism, please visit my main website at:  http://www.alanpeto.com/category/buddhism.  The best article to start with on my site is “Buddhism, a Quick Intro”:  http://www.alanpeto.com/buddhism/buddhism-quick-intro/

What Does The Name “Buddha Brainiac” Mean?

Buddha Brainiac means two things:  first, it identifies the website as a ‘knowledge base’ of answers, and is also mean to be a fun name 🙂

Thank you to my friend Fatima for helping to name this website!
