As human beings, we have one thing in common: we search all our lives for lasting happiness. You Were Born for a Reason tells us that happiness can indeed be found. But it is not found in the place we ordinarily look, such as status, achievements, or family. This book, which has sold nearly half a million copies since its original publication in Japan, shows us how to navigate life's obstacles from a deep and abiding source of inner peace. The authors—a Buddhist teacher, a psychotherapist, and a philosopher—bring their combined wisdom to bear on the age-old question: What is the purpose of life? They direct us toward answers contained in often-overlooked Buddhist teachings. In clear and compelling language, this book shows why human life is not only meaningful, but infinitely precious. It considers the many ills that plague modern society and guides us to the enduring truths that can renew our hearts and finally provide real happiness.
