Eight steps are discussed to help follow the Buddha’s path. The steps offer insight and a guideline to lead to the ultimate goal of enlightenment. The steps listed are: Skillful Understanding, Thinking, Speech, Action, Livelihood, Effort, Mindfulness, and Concentration. If followed correctly the burdens of every day life will be dealt with and handled and a sense of happiness and contentment will take the place of such negative feelings only allowing positive thoughts to enter and linger.

Review by

This is a pragmatic manual for day-to-day Buddhist practice following the traditional eight steps proposed by the Buddha. The steps are interpreted for contemporary westerners in an engaging, subtle, and good-humored manner. Practicality is emphasized. I go back to this book a lot. Lots of good suggestions. Constructive attitude.
