The Five Enemies

The Five Enemies Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you thought you had no enemies, think again! These enemies are not your next door neighbor nor are they lurking in some dark alley-they live in your mind and are some of the root causes of your unhappiness.

The Five Enemies merges the teachings of The Dharma with today's secular beliefs and attitudes. If you want to eliminate suffering in your life, then you need to know about the five enemies. 'If we do not learn how to control them, they will control us,' states the author.

The book explores each one of the enemies, beginning with enemy number one: Ill-Will or Anger, followed by Sensual Desire, Restlessness and Worry, Sloth, and Skeptical Doubt. Each enemy has an opposite emotion that can transform or slay the enemy when cultivated through mindfulness. Mindfulness is the mastery of ones mind and is discussed at length throughout the book. The Five Mindfulness Trainings are included to help the reader actually experience how to be mindful and slow down in his or her daily life.
