Hell realms, gods, and hungry ghosts--these are just a few of the images on the Buddhist wheel of life. In Awakening from the Daydream , discover how these ancient symbols are still relevant to our modern life.

In Awakening from the Daydream , meditation teacher David Nichtern reimagines the ancient Buddhist allegory of the Wheel of Life. Famously painted at the entryway to Buddhist monasteries, the Wheel of Life encapsulates the entirety of the human situation. In the image of the Wheel we find a teaching about how to make sense of life and how to find peace within an uncertain world.

Nichtern writes with clarity and humor, speaking to our contemporary society and its concerns and providing simple practical steps for building a mindful, compassionate, and liberating approach to living.
