Summary

Demonstrates the value of Buddhist practice and techniques in managing the multiple demands and challenges of everyday life.

Who was the Buddha and why did he become such a significant historical figure? What were his most important insights and teachings? What can he tell us about the universality of suffering and the potential for freedom? How can we live a life with growth and harmony and without emotional pain? What is Buddhist understanding of the greater reality?

With clarity and simplicity, wisdom and humor, Paramabandhu Groves takes us on a journey towards some answers to these questions. The Buddha’s remarkable passage through his own life showed him that ascetic practice in itself did no bring enlightenment, but a careful attention to internal processes combined with a compassionate attitude to self and others could bring an extraordinary freedom from suffering. The mainstay of Buddhist practice is mindfulness of breath, body, and emotions leading to a more profound awareness. The Buddha indicated a bigger picture, beyond words, based on the interconnectedness and impermanence of all things. Practical Buddhism shows us how we can use these practices to lead a moral and ethical life, receiving and giving friendship, not causing harm and achieving happiness while our consciousness becomes brighter, clearer, and more subtle. Paramabandhu weaves examples both from his own and other peoples’ experiences to demonstrate the value of Buddhist practice and techniques in managing the multiple demands and challenges of everyday life.

Paramabandhu Groves is a consultant psychiatrist working in the National Health Service in London, United Kingdom. He has lived and taught at the London Buddhist Centre for over twenty years.
