Featured book: Modern Buddhism
This remarkable book reveals how by developing and maintaining compassion and wisdom in our daily life we can use all aspects of Buddhism – from the most basic to the most profound – to solve our daily problems, improve our relationships with others, and look behind appearances to see the way things really are and experience a lasting inner peace and happiness. An inspiring handbook of daily practice.
Enlightenment is the inner light of wisdom that is permanently free from all mistaken appearance, and whose function is to bestow mental peace upon each and every living being every day.
From Modern Buddhism, p.30
