Eight Mindful Steps To Happiness (01 Edition)by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
In the Eightfold Path, the buddha offered us a complete guide for living happily: Skillfulness in understanding, thinking, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration. Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness explains in clear language how to use these steps to turn every situations that arises into an opportunity for peace and joy.
The sequel to "Mindfulness in Plain English" delivers a simple message: Living a happy life is not a theory or dream, but something eminently practical and achievable through the Buddha's Eightfold Path.
The author plumbs the "Eightfold Path" of Buddhism for advice on how to live life with the proper attention to understanding, thinking, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration.
In the same engaging style that has endeared him to readers of his bestselling Mindfulness in Plain English, Bhante Gunaratana delves deeply into each step of the Buddha's most profound teaching on bringing an end to suffering: the noble eightfold path. With generous and specific advice, Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness — a Foreword magazine Book of the Year Awards finalist — offers skillful ways to handle anger, find right livelihood, and cultivate loving-friendliness in relationships with parents, children, and partners. It also offers tools to overcome all the mental hindrances that prevent happiness. Whether you are an experienced meditator or someone who's only just beginning to practice mindfulness, this gentle and down-to-earth guide will help you bring the heart of the Buddha's teachings into every aspect of your life.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -259) and index.
