‘I teach because you and all beings want to have happiness and want to avoid suffering. I teach the way things are.’
Buddha is inarguably one of the most influential figures in world history. Over 2500 years ago, this extraordinary man founded the path of Buddhism that encompasses all his valuable teachings. Today, Buddhism is practised predominantly in East and Southeast Asia, and is growing its influence in the West and globally.
Buddhism and its tenets have been extolled for its virtues by many great leaders. Even though Buddha never saw himself as a leader, never aspired to be a leader, he continues to be a constant source of inspiration and guidance for many world leaders today.
This book is filled with many profound, philosophical yet practical teachings of the Buddha, and lessons that can be learnt from them to be an effective, efficient, and excellent leader and to achieve true success in life.
