Instruction

The following words of wisdom come from the teachings of the Buddha and those meditation masters who have followed the Buddha's path of happiness. The simple verses in this book explore the themes of individual awareness and kindness, wise relationships, and the interconnection of all beings. At their heart they simply remind us that we too can live with the wakefulness and compassion of a Buddha.

In the back of the book is a section called "The Art of Meditation." It includes six meditations to quiet your mind and open your heart in the midst of everyday life.

May these words and practices bring you inspiration, wisdom, and delight.
