This booklet is meant for the busy lay Buddhist in search of concise practical guidance in applying Buddhist principles to his or her everyday life. Its purpose is to explain, in clear and simple terms, how to live a proper Buddhist lay life in the midst of one’s worldly responsibilities. The author begins by stressing the need to acquire a right view of life — a clear-cut philosophy that illuminates the meaning and purpose of our existence. On the basis he proceeds to discuss how to apply the basic principles of the Dhamma to the concerns of a householder’s life; the choice of a career, marriage and child-rearing, moral and mental discipline, relaxation, old age And death.
The author – a devoted Buddhist, retired teacher, and worker – is firmly convinced that the Buddha’s teaching offers the most reasonable plan for wholesome living. Drawing upon his own life experience, he attempts to prove this conviction by showing how the Dhamma can be constructively applied in the many diverse active tires of daily life.
