The 16 Guidelines are a set of practical and straightforward
tools for developing happiness and meaning in everyday life. Inspired by a 7th
century text from the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo, they are being used by
people of all ages and cultures worldwide to transform problems and create the
causes of peace and wellbeing.
16 Guidelines: The Basics is the essential user manual for the 16 Guidelines. It's an
attractive, illustrated workbook with quotes, stories, challenges and guided
reflections for each guideline, together with an overview of each of the four
wisdom themes: how we think (the power of the mind); how we act (cause and
effect); how we relate to others (interdependence) and how we find meaning
(impermanence). Each of the Guidelines is associated with a role model whose
life story exemplifies that quality. The book is spiral-bound and lies open for
easy hands-free use. Available in Spanish.
Note: A set of16 Guidelines cardsmakes an excellent complement to The
Basics. The cards are a practical tool with many applications, from reframing
difficult situations to setting your motivation at the beginning of the day.
The 16 Guidelines are the first
initiative of Universal Wisdom Education,
an international non-profit which aims is to make the world a better place by helping
people to develop their natural compassion and wisdom.
