Meaning in Life
A Buddhist View
What meaning does life have in the face of suffering or death? Do we have a ‘why’ to live for?
Sarvananda draws a parallel between the Buddha’s quest and our own search for meaning in the modern world. He eloquently covers many of the ways in which we seek meaning, citing writers and thinkers such as Akira Kurosawa, Wordsworth and Woody Allen. He moves from individual understanding to the principles of Buddhist teaching and demonstrates in a calm, friendly way how to apply the teachings practically, before finally taking the reader to a deeper reality.
