This book is for anyone who wants to live a good life but is frustrated or tired of trying to perfect themselves. Pureland Buddhism takes a realistic view of our foolish natures as human beings, and offers us an alternative to the 'do it yourself' self-help movement. With anecdotes of temple life and instructions for simple Pureland practices, the authors introduce us to this ancient and unique tradition of Buddhism and show us how it can make a powerful difference to our everyday lives. Covering topics such as trust, overcoming suffering, grace, being kind and self-care, the book also contains the voices of different Pureland Buddhists speaking of their own diverse experiences. This book shows us how we are all loveable just as we are, and that understanding this is the key to deep and lasting change. Reverend Kaspalita and Reverend Satyavani are ordained Priests with the Amida-Shu and they run a small Pureland temple in Malvern in the UK. They both work as psychotherapists and are interested in building local community and in teaching Buddhism that improves the lives of ordinary people like you and me.
