Beschreibung:

At the heart of peaceful coexistence in today`s fissured world lies the family. It is here that the individual first learns to interact with people, and picks up the valuable trait of tolerance. For, as in the family, so too in the world outside, no two people are the same. Differences are inevitable, and to surmount them tolerance is a must. It is this and other aspects of living happily and harmoniously in a family and how these attitudes can be replicated in society that Acharya Mahapragya discusses in this book. The subject is all the more important today as the family is itself facing a crisis as it struggles to survive against a rising tide of individuality and self-centredness. The Happy and Harmonious Family provides a number of solutions to everyday familial problems, and various practices of contemplative meditation which will enable a reader to overcome negativity within the family. With its emphasis on time-tested values and practical solutions, this book is a valuable guide to helping shape a better life Printed Pages: 197. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 27346
