What Spiritual Leaders Read Before Bed
The most enlightening among us choose their titles for peace, wisdom and fresh perspective after a long day.
"I keep with me three of the Buddha's teachings called the 'pillow sutras
' because they are so important they should live under your pillow. They are the Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing, the Sutra on the Four Establishments of Mindfulness and the Sutra on Knowing the Better Way to Live Alone. Together, they include everything that is necessary to be truly happy in the present moment. The day I discovered the Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing, I felt as if I'd found a huge treasure. I was sure I was the happiest person on earth."
