Deeper Beauty: Buddhist reflections on everyday life
How often do we feel we have no time for reflection? Or little time to care for others - or even ourselves? Adrift in our lives, we are pulled further and further away from a sense of who we are. In A Deeper Beauty, Paramananda speaks directly to our hearts about what is truly important to us, whether we are making a cup of tea or sitting at the bedside of a dying friend. Using simple exercises, reflections and meditations, we can awaken to the magic of being fully present in each moment of our day-to-day activities.
Paramananda draws on his experience as a hospice worker and his many years as a Buddhist meditation teacher in both an imaginitive and a down-to-earth way. He offers us courage, kindness and joy in our search for meaning.
We are invited to a greater intimacy with ourselves and the world - to plunge beneath the surface of our ordinary lives to find a deeper beauty.
