Open Heart, Clear MindAn Introduction to Buddha’s Teachings
A practical introduction to the application of Buddhist psychology to modern life in order to better understand ourselves and improve the quality of our lives.
The teachings of the Buddha have provided solace and comfort to countless people over the last two thousand five hundred years. During this time their influence has been felt largely in Asian countries, although in recent decades interest has grown remarkably throughout the world. Heartening evidence of this is that persons like Venerable Thubten Chodron, who were neither born nor brought up in traditionally Buddhist countries, have been inspired to devote their time and effort to helping others to benefit from Buddhist practice.
