Translated by Tom Graham

Being Good invites readers to consider what it means to lead a good life. In this collection of essays, Venerable Master Hsing Yun offers practical advice on specific moral and ethical issues, using passages from the Buddhist scriptures as a point of departure for his discussions. Topics include controlling the body and speech, overcoming greed, ending anger, having patience under insult, getting along with others, as well as what it means to practice Buddhism, and the joys and blessings which come from that practice.
