Based on teachings from the Kadampa Buddhist Tradition, Modern Buddhism is a special presentation that communicates the essence of the entire path to liberation and enlightenment in a way that is easy to understand and put into practice. The emphasis throughout is on the practical application of methods for improving our human nature and qualities, and not on a merely intellectual understanding.

By developing and maintaining compassion and wisdom in our daily lives, we can gain profound realizations that transform our lives, improve our relationships with others and enable us to look behind appearances to see the way things actually exist. In this way we can solve all our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life. With compassion and wisdom, like the two wings of a bird, we can quickly reach the enlightened world of a Buddha.

This handbook of daily practice is perfectly suited for inspiring beginners who are seeking solutions within Buddhism to their problems of everyday life, as well as for encouraging long term practitioners to complete their practice of the Buddhist path to full enlightenment.
