The Challenge of The Mind
An Essential Guide to Buddha’s Teachings: Zen, Karma, and Enlightenment
The Challenge of the Mind is an excellent guide to exploring the infinite potential of our mind from Buddha's perspective. In this book, author Ryuho Okawa shows how we can apply the essential teachings of Buddha to our lives and cultivate deep wisdom and promote a happy, peaceful everyday life.
Through expounding such principles as the laws of cause and effect, egolessness, and the middle way, in simple, clear, but thoughtprovoking language, Okawa imbues a new life into the traditional Buddhist teachings, and offers a solid basis of reason and intellectual understanding to often over complicated teachings.
Enlightenment is not just an abstract idea but is a state of mind that we can achieve as long as we continue our endeavor to seek higher awareness earnestly and honestly. By applying these fundamental principles to our lives, we can direct our minds to higher ideals and carve out a path to a bright future.
