Buddhism for Everyday Life
By Nikkyo Niwano Founder of Rissho Kosei-kai
With a foreword by Gene Reeves
If you are ready for what this author shares with his readers, this book can change your life. In its readily understandable pages, Rev Nikkyo Niwano demonstrates how the ancient teachings of the Buddha can help to transform our complex and confusing modern lives. Encouraging us with vibrant examples from his own ninety-two years of life, he shows how learning to be aware of the needs of others can gradually awaken your innate buddha-nature. By emphasising the fundamental Buddhist principles that everything is constantly changing and is interdependent, he teaches us that life’s impermanence holds the promise of infinite potential, and that the recognition of how all people and all things are interrelated can form the basis of our lasting happiness. Throughout these pages, the sensitivity, consideration and wisdom of the author cannot fail to inspire you.
