Suffering and its cause. 4. Suffering and its solution. 5. What to do with the Mind. 6. Mastering the Mind. 7. Letting Go. 8. Happiness in this present life. 9. Life as an Experiment. 10. Casting light on Enlightenment. 11. The Precepts the nuts and bolts of everyday life. “These selections, taken from both original texts and modern commentaries, offer readers a taste of all the basic Buddhist concepts and teachings. Although no book can do justice to such a diverse tradition, the pages that follow will prove to be valuable and inspiring both for the seasoned practitioner and for those encountering Buddhism for the first time.” (from the Dr Loys Introduction)
