Family Day By Day

In translating this book, we strived to maintain the fundamental meaning and feel of the original version (The Warm Hearted Family.) but also adapt it so that non-Thai’s find the teachings more applicable to their own culture. No matter what religion a person is, the teachings in this book are meant to help people help themselves. In no way should they be viewed as dogmatic or doctrinaire. Thailand itself has a deep connection with Theravada Buddhism, heavily interlinked in culture and tradition.

Buddhist Economics

Buddhists often tend to disregard economics completely, because the monastic way of life idealized by Buddhism is economically very minimalist . Such neglect of comment concerning economic values is not warranted, however, because the Buddhist scriptures are in fact rich with advice from the Buddha regarding sound economic values and they are applicable to monastic and lay lifestyles alike.
