The No-Nonsense Guide to Using Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy for a Better Life
Over the past few decades, scientists have grown increasingly interested in happiness: What makes us happy or unhappy? How can we increase our happiness?
Buddhists have been studying the phenomenon of happiness for millennia.
Today, there’s considerable intersection between Buddhism and science. Recent research indicates that Buddhism—as well as other ancient Eastern traditions such as Taoism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism—have an incredible amount to teach us about living a better life.
The simple fact is that learning about Buddhism and other eastern philosophies can change your life.
By unwrapping these iconic teachings, this 96 page eBook focuses on specific actions you can take to improve all aspects of daily living, including your relationships, emotional resilience and state of mind. You’ll receive simple, actionable tips that you can put into practice straight away.
Overview of the eBook
The western world is starting to wake up to what Buddhists have always known: that mindfulness and living in the moment are key components to living your best, happiest, most fulfilled life.
But you don’t have to travel to a remote cave or mountain or desert to find a sense of calm. All of these things are already in your mind. (It is called mindfulness, after all).
You can learn how to meditate, how to foster healthier relationships, how to heal from pain and trauma, how to unburden yourself from intrusive negative thoughts right here, right now, where you already are.
How to Use Buddhist Teachings for a Mindful, Peaceful and Happy Life will introduce you to several Eastern traditions—primarily Buddhism, but also Taoism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Hinduism—drawing on their insights to make practical suggestions for your everyday life.
In this eBook we explain:
- The main benefits of mindfulness and how you can be mindful on a daily basis.
- Why meditation is a great way to practice mindfulness and 4 simple techniques to start meditating today.
- The best way for you to approach relationships.
- How you can minimize harm in your daily actions.
- How to let things go.
- How you can rest and heal.
We draw on Buddhist teachings through the book, particularly as they relate to mindfulness and meditation. Jain and Sikh ideas make an entrance when we talk about cultivating relationships. Jainism appears alongside Hinduism on minimizing harm in the world.
Unfortunately, most of the information about Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies is esoteric and difficult to follow. Therefore, in this eBook we break down these teachings in a practical, easy to understand way. You’ll receive practical tips based on ancient wisdom to live a better life today.
