“Just as a line drawn on water with a stick will quickly vanish and will not last long; even so, brahmins, is human life like a line drawn on water. It is short, limited, and brief; it is full of suffering. One should do good and live a pure life; for none who is born can escape death.”
~ The Buddha
AN 7:70

Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness

Bhante Gunaratana

Accent Image

The Noble Eightfold Path is the core of the Buddha’s teaching and the fourth noble truth. In his book, Bhante G systematically discusses each step individually, while never losing sight of their relationship to each other or how they affect our daily lives. As always the author is clear and direct in language, with many practical examples drawn from life’s experience, and lists of check-up points to help identify their role in our lives.
