For this week’s eBook give away we’ve chosen Vajragupta’s Sailing the Worldly Winds. The Buddha talked about being blown about by circumstances beyond our control, and described our usual and often ineffective strategies to try to shore ourselves up. He called these the Worldly Winds.
Vajragupta explores these patterns of hanging on and being blown about. The key to a happier and wiser response, he says, is to acknowledge the fact of what is happening, and actively choose how we respond. Can we be creative, generous and stable? Can we find new opportunities in unsettled times? Can we become a resource to the situations we find ourselves in? This book shows us how.
