“Buddhism is more than a religion, it is a way of using the mind. Buddhists don’t just have different beliefs from others, they gradually learn to use their minds differently and with the transformation of the mind everything else changes. This little book offers a clear and easy-to-understand introduction to the Buddha’s teachings. The reader will be challenged in some ways but inspired and encouraged in others. And those who take its message to heart will have the promise of a new, happy and fulfilled life.” ~Buddha Dhamma Mandala Society Singapore

The Greatest Things
The greatest achievement is selflessness. The greatest worth is self-mastery. The greatest quality is seeking to serve others. The greatest precept is continual awareness. The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything. The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways. The greatest magic is transmuting the passions. The greatest generosity is non-attachment. The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind. The greatest patience is humility. The greatest effort is not concerned with results. The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go. The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances. Atisha (11th century Tibetan Buddhist master)
