Having spent his life studying world religions and spiritual practices, Templeton has translated this mass of information into 200 “laws of life.” Arranged in weekly sessions of study, the book is specifically organized to accommodate the school calendar as well as study groups and organizations. Templeton's sources are extensive, including teachings from Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Native American, Jainism, ancient Persian texts, Confucianism, Taoism, Sikhism, Zen, and Zoroastrianism. The material was chosen for its ability to uplift the mind, provide answers to life's most profound questions, and contribute to the growth of wisdom and a peaceful heart. At the end of each section, there are highlights from the week's study material, suggestions for putting the laws into practices in daily life, and a place for personal notes. Reading through this book is a calming experience, a welcome break from stressful and agitated thinking.
