The Inward Path
In this collection of inspirational essays the author, who holds a leadership position in a huge lay Buddhist organization, shares his thoughts on what it means to live and grow as a Buddhist while carrying out one's duties amid the hurly-burly of modern city life. The essays address a wide range of themes--the practice of Buddhism in daily life, nature and the seasons, family life, the value of tradition, helpful and harmful attitudes. Together, they represent the practical wisdom gleaned from the constant effort to follow the "inward path" of the religious life in a secular world.
NICHIKO NIWANO, the eldest son of Nikkyo Niwano, is president of Rissho Kosei-kai, a lay Buddhist organization with well over six million members worldwide. He is also the author of Modern Meditations and My Father, My Teacher.
