  • Buddha's Little Instruction Book

  • Jack Kornfield had gathered together the Buddha's best and most beautiful words and those of his countless disciples to create an enlightening, accessible and practical companion for those in search of the Buddha's path of happiness. The simple, but profound, verses and quotations in BUDDHA'S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK explore the themes of individual awareness and kindness, wise relationships and the interconnection of all beings, and act as a reminder that anyone can live with the mindfulness and compassion of a Budda. The section on the Art of Meditation includes easily followed meditations for sitting, walking, eating, loving kindness, forgiveness and compassion.

Jack Kornfield was trained as a Buddhist monk in Thailand, Burma and India and has taught meditation worldwide since 1974. He is one of the key teachers to introduce Theravada Buddhist practice to the West, concentrating on bringing alive the great Eastern spiritual teachings for Western students. Jack also holds a PhD in clinical psychology. He is founding teacher of the Insight Meditation Society and the Spirit Rock Center and lives with his wife and daughter in northern California.
