Buddhism is not a god-based theology like Christianity, Judaism, or Islam. Rather, it is a spiritual philosophy that over the centuries has evolved into many different branches. Born into the Theravada Buddhist philosophy, Don G. Athukorala has written Buddha's Principle of Relativity: Mind Body Stress, a 264-page compendium showcasing “the Buddha’s Code of Practice”

Though considered esoteric, even arcane, in the West, the books contains the methods of a way of achieving better health through an ancient teaching of the Buddha, relatively neglected in the West for more than fifteen hundred years. The underlying premise is that the psychology of the mind can and does have tremendous influence and effect upon the body. Mind, body, and stress have interconnectedness within man’s physical system. With its rewarding combination of science, technology, and Buddhist wisdom, Athukorala’s Buddha's Principle of Relativity is an enjoyable, practical, as well as enlightening reading.

Enhanced with an extended bibliography and a comprehensive index, Buddha's Principle of Relativity is informed, informative, thoughtful, thought-provoking, and a seminal contribution to the growing body of Buddhist literature for western readers.
