Product description

Review

‘Written with humour, lightness of touch and an affection for the human condition with all its faults, this book is a blessedly easy and reader-friendly account of what Buddhism has to offer.’
Anne Bancroft, Resurgence

From the Back Cover

At the heart of Buddhism is a Buddhism of the heart. The religion for a secular age, it offers a practical, comprehensible way to achieve more peace of mind and generosity of spirit. Concerning itself primarily with improving the quality of everyday life, it requires no adherence to obscure or magical beliefs, and offers a penetrating diagnosis of the human condition as well as a powerful and proven set of techniques for overcoming the rigours of today's world, both at home and at work.

Guy Claxton explains why Buddhism is so appropriate to our personal, social and global predicament and goes on to describe how we can help ourselves individually, with a teacher, or in a group, through understanding, meditation, communication and discipline.

‘Written with humour, lightness of touch and an affection for the human condition with all its faults, this book is a blessedly easy and reader-friendly account of what Buddhism has to offer. But it is also a serious book and nothing of the basic teaching is left out.’
ANNE BANCROFT, 'Resurgence'
