Firmly grounded in the day-to-day reality of being a mother, The Complete Buddhism for Mothers gives personal and honest advice based on Buddhist teachings as applied to the everyday challenges of bringing up children.
Become a calmer and happier mother with The Complete Buddhism for Mothers. Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil for a woman yet parenting books invariably focus on nurturing children rather than the mothers who struggle to raise them. These books are different. Together for the first time, these three bestsellers - Buddhism for Mothers, Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children and Buddhism for Mothers of Schoolchildren - explore the joy of being with your children in the all-important present moment. In these books, mothers have found the inspiration to be more patient, loving and attentive towards their children, other family members, other parents, but most of all, themselves.
In her clear and engaging way, Sarah Napthali takes us on a journey through the challenges (and the pleasures!) of raising children, using Buddhist teachings and principles to help her answer the eternal questions of mothers everywhere: Who am I now? Where am I going? And how can I do my best by my children and myself? This wisdom also allows space for the deeper reflections about who we are and what makes us happy.
Writing from personal experience, and weaving in stories from other mothers throughout her narrative, Sarah shows us how spiritual and mindful parenting can help all mothers to be more open and content. Even if exploring Buddhism at this busy stage of your life is not where you thought you'd be, it's well worth reading this book. It can make a difference.
About the Author
Sarah Napthali is a mother of two boys who strives to apply Buddhist teachings in her daily life. She is the author of Buddhism for Mothers, which has sold 60,000 copies around the world and been translated into nine languages to date, Buddhism for Mothers of Young Chidlren (formerly published under the title of Buddhism for Mothers with Lingering Questions) and Buddhism for Mothers of Schoolchildren.

This is an excellent, practical guide to everyday Buddhism not just for mothers, but for everyone who has ever had a mother. -- Vicki Mackenzie, author of the bestselling Why Buddhism?
