Therefore we know that, unawakened, even Buddha is a sentient being, and that even a sentient being, if he is awakened in an instant of thought, is a Buddha." -Hui Neng

A Gift of Awakening is part of an inspirational series that delivers greater understanding, harmony, and enlightenment for all who journey through life. Each volume of the series, which also includes A Gift of Happiness and A Gift of Inner Peace, combines author Gill Farrer-Halls's Buddhist-focused concepts with British artist Robert Beer's exquisite color illustrations inspired by the natural world. Book jackets boast an eye-catching translucent cover with metallic inks.

A Gift of Awakening opens the doors of enlightenment to all, overcoming the thought that this higher state of awareness is only accessible to those who sacrifice everything to find it. All who are willing to open their minds, this book explains, are free to pursue and achieve this awakening. This collection of inspirational thoughts, quotations, and guidance can be the beginning of a very personal journey.
