As human beings, we have one thing in common -- we search all our lives for lasting happiness. "You Were Born For a Reason" tells us that happiness can indeed be found. But it is not found in the place we ordinarily look, such as status, achievements, or family. The book shows us how to navigate life's obstacles from a deep and abiding source of inner peace. The authors -- a Buddhist teacher, a psychotherapist, a philosopher -- bring their combined wisdom to bear on the age-old question: what is the purpose of life? They direct us toward answers contained in often-overlooked Buddhist teachings -- specifically, in the words of Shinran, who is the founder of Jodo Shinshu, the largest of Japan's schools of Buddhism. In clear and compelling language, this book shows why human life is not only meaningful, but infinitely precious.
