What is the nature of spirit and soul? What are the universal spiritual laws and how can we learn to live in harmony with them? What really happens when we die?
In this powerful book, author and teacher Ryuho Okawa reveals the transcendent nature of consciousness and the secrets of our multidimensional universe and our place in it. By understanding the natural laws of the universe and following the Buddhist Eightfold Path, he believes we can speed up our eternal process of development. The Laws of the Sun shows the way to realize true happiness--a happiness that continues from this world through the other. The book's modern interpretation of traditional Buddhist teachings addresses many vital issues including how our thoughts influence reality and the different stages of spiritual and human love.
