This is a handy guide for mindfulness for busy people living at full throttle in the world. It’s a gentle calling to slow down and to heed the five mindfulness training precepts which are: not to kill, steal, commit adultery, lie, or take intoxicants. These are the basic ethics and morality in Buddhism.
Zen master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh outlines how we can use these principles to help ourselves in our everyday busy lives. This is a great bedside reference book to look at after you have had a really hard day, to bring things back into focus. There is a lot of insight here into how these precepts can change you inside but also could change the broader world in general.
This is a great secular, moral guideline on how we can all cultivate a more compassionate, kind and healthy way of relating to ourselves and to the world. I found this book to be really beautiful and it’s a short length and easy to get through. 4/5*
