Description

Why do we suffer? Is there a purpose to our pain? Can we affect how much we suffer? Noting that humans have wrestled with such questions for thousands of years, Phillip for has found answers for his own life in Buddhist philosophy. In this deeply spiritual book that is sure to become a Buddhist classic, he explores the twelve insights that underlie the Buddha's core teaching--the Four Noble Truths--and uses these often neglected insights to guide readers to more meaningful lives. Moffitt writes: "These twelve insights teach you to dance with both the joy and pain, finding peace in a balanced mind and calm spirit. As the most specific, practical life instructions I have ever encountered, they serve as an invaluable tool for anyone who seeks a life filled with meaning and well-being."
