Cultivating the Buddhist Heart: How to Find Peace and Fulfillment in a Changing World is the latest book by Nichiko Niwano.
What was the exact nature of the spiritual awakening of Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism?
In this inspirational book, we see the fruit of deep reflection based on the study of Buddhist scriptures and the writings of great teachers from the past and present. The author describes what it means to emulate this master teacher Shakyamuni, and explains how we can find true inner peace and fulfillment by cultivating the "Buddhist heart", by nurturing attitudes that will change our lives for the better.
By Nichiko Niwano, president of the lay Buddhist organization Rissho Kosei-kai, which has well over six million members worldwide. He is also the author of The Inward Path and Modern Meditations.
