Publisher's Summary

Who among us wouldn’t want to be more patient, more kind, more accepting, more just, more selfless, more loving, and more connected to the world? 

It seems like we spend our entire lives searching for the secrets of living a better life - flipping through self-help books, watching inspirational television shows. But powerful life lessons are often found in places we never think to look. And one of those rich and rewarding places: Asia’s powerful religious traditions. 

As Professor Constance Kassor reveals in the 10 illuminating lectures of Religious Lessons from Asia to the World, the incredibly complex and diverse faith systems of Tibet, China, India, and other Asian countries offer believers and nonbelievers alike a number of important teachings and ideas that can help us become better people - and live happier, more fulfilling lives. Designed as a fascinating sampler of ideas from different traditions, Professor Kassor invites you to learn from Buddhism’s four sublime states, which recognize that no one wants to suffer; the Bhagavad Gita’s emphasis on dharma, or duty; the Daoist concept of wu-wei, or going with the flow; and more.

Emotional insights and breakthroughs from Asia’s greatest thinkers and spiritual texts. All yours - no appointments necessary.
