Book title : A Buddhist Reflects on the Family
Author : Vijaya Samarawickrama
Topic : Self Help / Guidance / Counselling

Family is defined as a group of persons united by the ties of marriage, blood, or adoption, constituting a single household and interacting with each other in their respective social positions, usually those of spouses, parents, children, and siblings [Source:The Britannica Online Encyclopædia ]

By referring to the teachings of the Buddha, in A Buddhist Reflects on the Family, Mr. Vijaya expounded the principles that Buddhists shall embrace in order to establish and develop a blissful family. 

In this booklet, there are discussions on the following topics :

  1. The pursuit of happiness
  2. Monasticism & family life
  3. Advice for householders
  4. Duties and obligations
  5. The meaning of love
  6. The consequences of ingratitude
  7. Respect for elders
Though we may know that it is important to care for our family well-being but how many of us know the way to achieve this well-being?  Have we experience this - gaining great strength and happiness by being part of a well-functioning family?

We encourage you pick up this handy booklet and discover for yourself the practical way to be blessed with domestic bliss.

Besides reading the booklet, you can also meet up with the author during the session on  25 February 2012, next Saturday, 3.00pm – 4.30pm at Nalanda Centre.  We invite you to participate, discuss face to face with Mr. Vijaya, and tap into his experience in maintaining a happy, healthy family.  Don’t miss the opportunity!
