This book is a free translation of an Eighth Century, Buddhist Classic, the BODDHISATTVA WAY OF LIFE by Santideva. Over the past 1,200 years, this book has probably sold more copies than any other Terevada Buddhist book, except the early Pali Cannons. This UNIVERSAL POWER OF SPITITUAL AWAKENING is clearly defined by Santideva. It's common to all spirituality and philosophy, so it's not necessary to convert to Buddhism or any other religion. And it will not take you from 3 to five years to get well as your Western Psychologist may contend. You can end suffering now! Oddly the ancient, Greek philosopher, Aristotle wrote ETHICS about 2,500 years ago. Aristotle and Santideva are in perfect agreement: that is, true happiness comes only from Virtue. College professors are still arguing over how this could possible be true. But with Santideva there's no argument. Suffering is scientifically ended by following the simple practice outlined in the book.
