Using examples from Buddhist teachings as well as everyday life, the author shows how the first nine aspects of knowledge cover all avenues of 'right livelihood', leading to the tenth and most advanced aspect of knowledge, inner truth. The Buddha taught about ten aspects of knowledge - normal worldly activities through which the ordinary person could achieve understanding and realization. In this book, Tai Situpadescribes these activities, which encompass medicine, psychology, astrology and the creative arts, and explains how they can become an essential part of anyone's spiritual path. The wisdom of Mahayana Buddhism reveals ways to experience and utilize the powers of the universe.
