This is a book written by an internationally renowned Japanese Buddhist monk Ryunosuke Koike, whose works have been published in Korea, Taiwan, and China.

Rather than seeking materialistic satisfaction, Koike illustrates that there are many ways to find happiness in this world regardless of whether you have money or not. Based upon Zen Buddhism teachings, this book suggests that we can only find happiness once we stop consuming and learn how to resist our worldly desires.
