Challenge of the Mind by Ryuho Okawa
Book DescriptionRyuho Okawa is known for his wisdom, compassion and commitment to educating people to think and act in spiritual and religious ways. Through his Institute for Research in Human Happiness (IRH) he teaches and ministers to people who need help and they in turn spread his teachings to others. THE CHALLENGE OF THE MIND presents Okawa's thoughts on Karma; what it is, what it is not and the place of happiness and peace in the modern world. He also discusses how to attain karma, and how this links in with other tenets of the Buddhist way of life. Presenting the nature of karma and the challenge of attaining it in clear, simple but thought-provoking language, this is an excellent companion to THE ESSENCE OF BUDDHA and a complete demystification of an often over-complicated tradition.

UK Kirkus Review » I loved the clarity and simplicity of this book. Even the cover design is calming and balanced. Inside short chapters and basic language ensure that this complex subject is accessible to everyone and easy to understand. The Buddhist teachings are well covered and include the nature of karma, meditation and individual needs versus living with others. Ryuho Okawa author of 'The Essence of Buddha' shows how enlightenment is within the reach of everyone. He also shows how these principles can be put into practise in everyday life. There's certainly a lot to live up to here and I did think the concept of hell might alarm some people but there's plenty of positive advice and encouragement as well. Personal responsibility is emphasised along with the chance to learn and make progress in our lives. The kind of book you might offer as a gift to an open and enquiring mind! (Kirkus UK)
