For All Living Beings (A Guide to Buddhist Practice) – 人間佛教的戒定慧



“Once we realize that we all live in the same community we can let go of our one-sided sense of self and look out for each other. When we know that we are all one, we can see that all living beings are equal, and respect all beings’s rights to life.”

In For All Living Beings, Venerable Master Hsing Yun shows us that the path to a life that is wholesome, peaceful, and filled with wisdom starts with helping others.

With humor and a love of storytelling, For All Living Beings teaches us how doing the right thing can make us free, how meditation can open the mind, and how wisdom can enter every part of our lives and lead us to enlightenment.
