The Buddha taught far more than just meditation. This much-needed and long-awaited volume will be gratefully and enthusiastically received, bringing together the wealth of practical advice the Buddha offered "laypeople"-whose responsibilities include children and ageing parents, work and providing for a family, messy relationships and the never-ending quest to be a better person, the ones who can't or just aren't interested in devoting their life to meditation-in short, to the people like you and me. Including in this book is the Buddha's practical advice for lasting happiness on such topics as: -Investing -Success in business -Safeguarding prosperity -Finding fulfilling relationships -Dealing with interpersonal conflict -Creating a great marital partnership -Skillful parenting -Making wise decisions in all circumstances -Cultivating and refining an attractive personality
