FPMT News Around the World
Wednesday, September 12, 2012, is the second annual Mindfulness Day. All are encouraged to participate in this secular celebration by generating a more peaceful, compassionate mind and cultivating awareness and presence in daily life. Wisdom Publications, the sponsor of Mindfulness Day, is offering a discount on its ebooks on mindfulness, including The Mindful Writer by Dinty W. Moore. You can read Mandala’s recent interview with Dinty in this issue’s online content. To learn more about the day, visit the Mindfulness Day website.
For practitioners of Mahayana Buddhism, mindfulness practice also includes generating a strong attitude to benefit all beings.
