Synopsis

Japanese Buddhist monk Ryūnosuke Koike reinterprets into accessible present-day concepts 190 personally selected quotations on spiritual training taught by Gautama Buddha 2,500 years ago. According to Koike, the teachings of Buddha are not just pieces of religious philosophy, but also practical methodologies for mind training that are supported by modern cognitive and psychological science. Some of the words will soothe, while others will inspire inner strength and courage. With over 200,000 copies already sold, The Wisdom of Buddha has garnered much attention from both the mass media and the publishing industry.
