    I have read well over one hundred books on Buddhism After a while, many of them seem to be pretty much the same Some are books that focus on meditation, or the Four Noble Truths, or Karma, or the Eightfold Path, and they all share a weakness inherent in the limitation of the subject matter Stated another way, after you have read one book about breath meditation, you have read them all Dzigar Kongtrul has a gift for explaining Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is very accessible to Westerners H I have read well over one hundred books on Buddhism After a while, many of them seem to be pretty much the same Some are books that focus on meditation, or the Four Noble Truths, or Karma, or the Eightfold Path, and they all share a weakness inherent in the limitation of the subject matter Stated another way, after you have read one book about breath meditation, you have read them all Dzigar Kongtrul has a gift for explaining Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is very accessible to Westerners He doesn t get bogged down, for example, in theesoteric points of Tibetan cosmology Rather, he uses examples that any person from the West can relate to and explains Buddhist concepts in ways that not only make sense but also are very engaging and leave the reader eager forThis is one of the best books about Buddhism I have ever read, and I recommend it highly and without reservation

  2. Sara says:

    This is the best book I have read about Buddhism in my life Granted, I am still a nascent Buddhist and have a lotto read, but this book truly spoke to me It s one of those rare books that actually has the power to change your life and your way of being, and one that I will most certainly re read.

  3. Vishnu says:

    I took the main message of this book to be, take a good, hard, long look at your self, and you ll see nothing there This may be a painful, confusing, challenging realization, but the alternative of ignorance is even worse The teachings never get old, and always take time andimportantly, practice to sink in That said, wonderful little book, very profound, and very thoughtfully and carefully written Highly recommended

    I read this so quickly, it was definitely an easy read as far as Buddhism goes but I did have to re read certain sections to try to fully grasp the concepts It is still not easy for me to understand a lot of these concepts mostly because they are so different than the western way of thinking, however I do believe this book has made it seem and feel like it will can easy to understand fully.

    If you ve ever experienced any self doubt this book may speak to you as it did to me Written by a former Buddhist monk who himself has struggled on his own path, it is not about self help, but self reflection I later attended a retreat with him at Rocky Mountain Shambla Center and he was as funny and wise as he is in this book He doesn t let you forget to laugh at yourself.

  7. Anna Mosca says:

    This is a good book There are a lot of interesting points to meditate on, interesting points of views For some reasons I do not understand, at first it didn t take me in but, by the end I was sorry it was over I felt better just to listen to it I read it twice, the second time around just immediately after I reached the end of the first time The second time around I had the same impression, that it gets betters as you go on.
