Description - The Buddha's Teachings to Laypeople by Bhikkhu Rahula Basnagoda

Money and investing. Family. Relationships. Work and business. Sex. What could the Buddha tell us about such worldly concerns? More than you might think--and you'll find it all here. Some of it might well surprise you. All of it will guide you toward a more prosperous, more fulfilling, and truly happier way of life. The Buddha had an unusually keen insight into what people with everyday concerns need to know, and The Buddha's Teachings on Prosperity delivers the actual teachings that he gave to all those many people he encountered who were not monks or nuns-or even, meditators. This is practical advice on the important stuff of life, those things nearly all of us must deal with in order to enjoy a meaningful, lasting happiness: Taking care of children and aging parents Providing for our families Working with employees and business partners Finding and maintaining love relationships and marital partnerships Making responsible, ethical financial decisions Cultivating the best in your personality These very do-able practices are specifically for those who can't or (for whatever reason) won't be devoting their lives to meditation or any kind of religious teaching--but who nonetheless wish to minimize their suffering, maximize their joy, and help create a better world.
