The Buddha’s Ten Guiding Principles for a Blessed Life
Living Kindness—a book that was used at the United Nations to teach meditation and as required reading for a Buddhist Chaplaincy program—invites you to deeply experience and integrate the Buddha’s ten guiding principles for leading a blessed life.
Through transformative stories and inspiring anecdotes, international mindfulness expert Donald Altman shows how ten timeless principles—generosity, effort, patience, ethics, simplicity and meditation, wisdom, truthfulness, steadfastness, equanimity, and loving-kindness—all serve to invite personal awakening and compassionate living.
Demonstrating how these wise principles have endured in the rituals and practices of many of the world’s great religions, Living Kindness offers clarity, comfort, and guidance to everyone, regardless of faith or creed. This handbook for enlightened living will help you meet the challenges of today’s increasingly complex world with wisdom and kindness.
