A practical manual for daily life that shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, reduce and stop our experience of problems, and bring about positive changes in our mind that will lead us to experience deep and lasting happiness.
Drawing on the timeless wisdom of Buddhism and his own deep experience of these practices, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso presents a comprehensive path to inner and outer peace, perfectly suited to the modern world. "When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind.
If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development.
Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind.
Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and to be free from problems, we must develop and maintain a peaceful mind."
