Description About the author Contents
 
Who was the Buddha and why did he become such a significant historical figure? What were his most important insights and teachings? What can he tell us about the universality of suffering and the potential for freedom? How can we live a life with growth and harmony and without emotional pain? What is the Buddhist understanding of the greater reality? With clarity , simplicity, wisdom and humour, Paramabandhu takes us towards some answers to these questions. Paramabandhu weaves examples both from his own experience and other peoples to demonstrate the value of Buddhist practice and techniques in managing the multiple demands and everyday challenges of modern life. Practical Buddhism explores:  Mindfulness practice and misconceptions about meditation  Working with troublesome thoughts and difficult emotions  The practice of compassion and kindness  Guidelines for skillful living  Working through stress, relationship problems and addictive behaviour  The meaning of karma and dharma  Understanding freedom, impermanence and non-selfhood  Buddhism and psychotherapy  How Buddhist practice informs our relationship with sexuality, illness and pain, greed and sustainability.
