The Art of Happiness

Teachings of Buddhist Psychology

Mirko Fryba

Achieve true happiness by following the principles of the Abhidamma - an ancient Buddhist ethical-psychological teaching. This self-help book, written by Dr. Frýba, offers a complete workbook of Dharma strategies for self-transformation. It includes thirty exercises that teach readers how to deal with negative emotions, promote positive emotions, and perceive reality with clarity and wisdom. Dr. Fryba's faithfulness to Buddhist sources will be appreciated by traditional-minded practitioners, while his relatable examples make the techniques applicable to today's world.

Goodreads Rating
This book is a widely ranging exploration of the principles of Buddhist psychology and one of the first to make abhidharma psychology understandable to the West. Dr. Frýba's commentary and reflections show how these principles can bring understanding and be applied in modern life. I recommend it.      source
