Term 2: ‘Buddha’s Guide to a Joyful Life’
Buddha taught six practices, known as the six perfections, which enable us to lead a beneficial and joyful life. These six; giving, moral discipline, patient acceptance, joyful effort, and concentration and wisdom can easily be incorporated into our own daily routine. Not only will they help us to deal skillfully with problems with a peaceful and happy mind, they will also empower us to benefit others greatly. Practicing these six perfections gives us the skill to make our job, relationships and enjoyments part of our path to enlightenment.
