1001 Pearls of Buddhist Wisdom
An inspiring collection of the most important and best-loved insights of Buddhist practice, from the Buddha’s teachings to the Zen of Japan and the Tantric wisdom of Tibet
Buddhism has influenced Western thinking like no other Eastern religion, and even people who have no interest in adopting it wholeheartedly acknowledge the wisdom of its philosophical insights. 1001 Pearls of Buddhist Wisdom covers basic themes of universal relevance – such as the beauty of nature, good and bad karma, the importance of empathy, how to deal with stress and anxiety, how to meditate successfully, how to be happy, and the joy to be found in service to others. Alongside the “pearls” there are “lanterns”: lucid explanations of key Buddhist concepts that illuminate Buddhist belief and practice, and enlightening accounts of key moments, such as the Buddha’s sermon in the deer park.
Full of accessible Eastern wisdom, this book will help you find the road to inner peace and happiness ... and even, perhaps, nirvana.
