More About This Book

Overview

Each day, we are faced with moments when we need to make decisions about how we lead our lives...whether they concern our work, our personal relationships, or other aspects of our lives. How do we as Buddhists make those decisions? Do we listen to our ego, our learned experience, or our true Buddha nature? Since most of us are not enlightened or have even reached a stage approaching enlightenment this presents a very real challenge. Making Your Way in Life as a Buddhist is a practical guide to making those decisions consistent with the Buddhist path, rather than constantly falling off it because of the pull of our ego.

We cannot escape the fact that we are part of the contemporary culture. We live in this world and it is the way it is. We are part of it...our work, our shopping, our reading, our family relationships...all of this happening within the context of and is impacted by our culture. But we need to not be captive to it.

If we are walking the Buddhist path and seek peace and contentment, we must find a way to be part of that culture and yet look at our interactions with it from a Buddhist perspective. Making Your Way in Life will show you the way.
