Overview

The increasing complexities and mysteries of life have inspired a journey back to the essential teachings of the world's ancient religions. Drawing on basic Buddhist tenets, Living Kindness helps the seeker on that journey. The same principles that guided the historical Gautama Buddha on his path to enlightenment are here � generosity, effort, patience, ethics, simplicity and meditation, wisdom, thoughtfulness, steadfastness, equanimity, and loving-kindness. Poetically drawn stories and anecdotes from the author's life and the lives of his teachers demonstrate how these ten principles endure in the rituals and practices of many of the world's great religions � and how they apply to modern living. The clarity, comfort, and guidance found in this book will help to teach and inspire sacred living.
