Publisher Comments:

Robert Thurman is America's most popular and chrismatic Buddhist. His first book, Inner Revolution, is an international bestseller and his lectures sell out to thousands. Infinite Life demonstrates that our every action has infinite consequences for ourselves and others, here and now, and after we are gone.

Thurman introduces the Seven Virtues to reconstructing body and mind carefully in order to reduce the negative consequences and cultivate the positive. In his powerful, pragmatic style, Thurman delivers life-changing lessons on the virtues and emotions. He invites us to take responsibility for our actions and their consequences while we revel in the knowledge that our lives are truly infinite.
