SUMMARY

How should we live? What is the path to peace, wisdom, and fulfillment? Certainly, these are central questions in our lives. Who better to consult for guidance than Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Muhammad? By reflecting on the lives of these great teachers, In the Path of the Masters illuminates the practical and personal implications of prayer and devotion and shows how spirituality can help us lead meaningful lives. In this beautifully written book the Carmodys offer readers a gift: the chance to take another look at and learn from figures who may be so familiar we don't - or can't - see them any more. They offer a brief biography of each founder, describing the events that most shaped his life, how his personal spirituality developed, how he lived, and how he died. Without resorting to useless speculation, they also describe as much as they can what kind of person he was. What made him angry; what made him laugh, who his enemies and friends were. Finally, they briefly trace the course of each religious tradition after its founder's death. Most helpful of all, In the Path of the Masters cuts through dogma and interpretation and goes to the heart of the matter: the lessons that each founder considered most important for a fulfilling life. Divided into the major dimensions of spiritual life - nature, society, the self, and divinity - the Carmodys provide clear and easy access to where each figure stands on enduring issues and how they compare with each other. The Buddha, for example, did not believe in a solid, substantial self although he did hand down a basic ethical code to his followers. Confucius focused on the Way, or traditional wisdom, as the guiding force behind personaldevelopment; Jesus looked to God, his father, as a way of understanding himself; Muhammad believed that the first relationship the self had to establish correctly was with Allah. As we face the difficulties of the twenty-first centCarmody, Denise L. is the author of 'In the Path of the Masters Understanding the Spirituality of Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Muhammad' with ISBN 9781557784094 and ISBN 1557784094.
