      This book is jam packed with concise information related to Mahayana Buddhism with a focus on Tibetan Buddhist practices It s great for both beginners and experienced, and presents topics ranging from ideas on the need for compassion and its generation, to tips on meditation, and some moving prayers and ritual type texts There s also a decent discussion on emptiness and ultimate boddhicitta It really covers the entire spectrum on Mahayana Tibetan Buddhist philosophy from a Mahayana devotional pe [...]

      It is so long since I began this book that I can t with clarity recall when I started it The reason why it s taken so long is that I have read it in snippets, at the end of meditation Even when one does this daily, five minutes of reading especially of a book like this takes time to digest.The book is really about the Eight Verses The eight steps to happiness are contained in the eight verses Simplified, they are cherish all other beings hold other beings as supreme to yourself so you surmount y [...]

      I was interested in the right speech aspect of whichever bit of Buddhist lore that belongs in, I forget offhand.Incidentally, what is it with Buddhism and numbered lists Seems to be a defining tic of the religion or whatever it is Here for instance we have, inter alia the two parts of learning to cherish others the four parts of enhancing cherishing love the five parts of exchanging self with others the three parts of great compassion and many many .Anyway, I feel that this lot have some wisdom, [...]

      I read this book 7 years ago and have read it a few times since It is a commentary on a classic Tibetan verse about finding happiness real happiness The style is easy to read, not too much jargon Each chapter focuses on one verse, explaining the meaning and concepts.What emerges is an understanding of what happiness is and what the obstacles to happiness are It is very practical and not fluffy at all If you think like this, then this will happen If you want to be happy, don t think like that, th [...]

      This lucid, easy to follow and accurate instructional text, explains the classical Tibetan approach to spiritual practice and the realisation of happiness in one s life in a way that makes the instruction accessible to the Western mind By sharing simple and effective ways to transform every day experiences into spiritual practice, and by teaching the reader how to root themselves in the fundamental practices of meditation and mindfulness, Geshe la brings a great deal of value to the table.I ve [...]

      I dipped into this book over fifteen years ago when it was recommended by a teacher at the Buddhist centre in Brighton who taught a course around it However, this was the first time that I read the book from cover to cover It is based on an 11th century eight types four lines text and although the early ideas like cherishing all living beings was easy enough if not quite so easy to achieve I have to admit to having trouble understanding the last verse which covered nothingness and emptiness But [...]

      This was one of the first Buddhist books that I read that really had an important impact on my capacity to grow my mind and overcome my anxieties To be sure, it wasn t the first Buddhist book I read, but it was such a practical and clear book that from the first chapter I was able to take the information and use it in my day to day life right away The bulk of this book is on the Buddhist way of loving others and is a commentary to a famous Buddhist text called Eight Verses of Training the Mind I [...]

      This is a sensational book for anyone looking for a unique perspective on lovingkindness teachings I deeply appreciated the text, in particular the way it presented the teachings in a way that felt completely honest and unvarnished For me, this was a strong contrast to other books that present the teachings in a way that may be most amenable to the Western reader student This book provided me with a foundational understanding, from which I think others have offered interpretations I m not saying [...]

      This is a book that was studied in the Heruka Buddhist Center Foundation Program This book describes the development of a regimen of prayer and meditation which goal is full enlightenment The program studied this book from January 2013 to the present It contains many deep spiritual practices to bring about inner peace for the individual and resolves to bind the participant to helping others in daily life It is a life changing regimen if applied with effort and concentration to one s life IMO.

      I have to admit, I ve never really sat down to read it through I just open to a page and read a little Despite this, every time I open the book, the passage I just happen upon helps me understand whatever situation I am in my true motives or if my motives are true , if I am truly being kind to other people, if I am masking some truth from myself or about someone else, etc I doubt I ll ever read two pages in a row, yet, this is a very important book to me UPDATE Been convinced that book should be [...]

      I read this book as I ve read no other As part of a Buddhist study program, we read in depth, about 3 5 pages a week Then we meditate on the practices and perspectives offered so as to become deeply familiar with them It took us two years to read this 250 page book When I first heard we d spend two years reading it, I was baffled Why It s not that long But that s not it Wow, what an experience I wouldn t have traded it for anything Soon, we ll start another book and we ll spend a couple of years [...]
