The Essential Guide to Finding Happiness in the Modern World
An engaging and practical guide to finding hapiness today, written by one of the most influential Buddhist leaders in the world.
“I love the modern world; we have so many opportunities to be generous and inspire each other,” writes His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa in Everyday Enlightenment. And in this simple, powerful book based on ancient Buddhist teachings but framed to be relevant in today’s world, the Drukpa outlines ways for all to find that generosity and inspiration in themselves.
As head of the thousand-year-old Drukpa Order, the Drukpa uses Buddhist practices to aid people who feel lost or uncertain, or who want to slow the pace of life and attend to the world around them more thoughtfully. He divides the book into sections including “The Uncommon Path,” “Walking Your Path,” and “Overcoming Obstacles Along Your Way,” and delineates ways in which readers can absorb into their lives Buddhist teachings that will allow them to choose to live more fully.
Clear and accessible, optimistic and profound, Everyday Enlightenment is essential reading for all those who want to improve their life by following a different, more meaningful life path.
