Firmly grounded in the day-to-day reality of being a mother, this revolutionary guide discusses Buddhist teachings as applied to the everyday challenges of bringing up children

 

Teaching how to become a calmer and happier mother through Buddhist teachings, this enlightened book helps mothers achieve their full potentials to be with their children in the all-important present moment, as well as to gain the most possible joy out of being with them. Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil for a woman—yet parenting books invariably focus on nurturing children rather than the mothers who struggle to raise them. This book is different; simply put, it's a book for mothers. Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of motherhood. These ways also allow space for the deeper reflections about who we are and what makes us happy. By acknowledging the sorrows as well as the joys of mothering, Buddhism for Mothers can help enable a shift in perspective—so that a mothers mind can guide them through the day instead of dragging them down. This is Buddhism at its most accessible, applied to the daily realities of ordinary parents.

Lucy Little, August 23, 2007 (view all comments by Lucy Little)
An excellent book for Buddhists who are mothers or mothers seeking calmness in raising children. In my opinion, the Buddhist ideas in the book are applicable to mothers of any faith. I was most struck by the statement that studies have shown that mothers hit their all-time low in self-esteem after having a second child. At this point, mothers often need more in the way of spiritual well-being and just ways to find serenity in a tumultuous day. I pick this book up now and then for a quick read to reclaim the calm within me.
