Wherever You Go, There You Are (ROUGH CUT)
Great book for life
I first saw him saying in videos available on the web and thought it was pretty nice. The poem of Derek Walcott's, 'Love after Love' that he introduced almost in any lecture was very thought-provoking. It touched my mind deeply, when it said,"There will be the time when, with elation you will greet yourself..." The words "with elation" expecially touched me. And then I read this book. It was an ...
The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology
"Insightful and Inspiring"
I went to "The Wise Heart" for insightful life-wisdom, of course, but I've also had some great laughs! Kornfield clearly enjoyed sharing with his readers the psychological underpinnings of the Buddha's teachings. Since I've been reading Buddhist books and meditating for years, I was suprised at the freshness of Kornfield's interpretations, and quite impressed by the clear and practical way ...
Breakfast with Buddha: A Novel
Algonquin Books, 2007
This Awesome Book....
This book has caused a spiritual reawakening in my life. I bought this copy to send to my son for his birthday, hoping that he will enjoy it as much as my wife and I did. Read this book; you won't be disappointed.
Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life
Thich Nhat Hanh
A truly fine book.
A must read for a road to health. I have purchased it for friends and family. Barbara
The Miracle of Mindfulness
Beacon Press, 1975
I've never taken the time to review anything until now. This book is so simple and so thought evoking that it is always at my side. (Okay, most of the time) I just open up to a page, as many open up a Bible, and take some pearl away that always seems appropriate. Thich Nhat Hanh has truly given us a gift in his writing.
A Record of Buddhistic kingdoms: being an account by the Chinese monk Fa-hsien of travels in India and Ceylon ...
Public Domain Books, 2000
Faxian and the history of Buddhism
A Record of Buddhistic Kingdoms is a good reference source that takes into account the religious tradition of Asia as witnessed by Chinese Buddhist Monk Faxian. Although his travelogue is brief and appears more as a journal, one should not discount the succinct appearance because the contents and all 40 chapters are a wealth of information are an important piece of history that also implements ...
Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears
This book is for everyone who wants to become more open to getting to know and respect themselves which breeds compassion for others. It's easier than you think. Another hit by Pema Chodron.

The layout, diagrams and text are an easy-to-read intro. to neuroscience, ...
Mindfulness in Plain English: Revised and Expanded Edition
Bhante Henepola Gunaratana
The title is incredibly accurate
This text *IS* all about presenting what can be the very challenging topic of meditation (and particularly Vipassana meditation) in words and language any person truly can understand. Moreover, the author doesn't try to appeal to and appease everyone; he is firm about what Vipassana is and isn't, about what challenges people do experience in meditation and in Vipassana, and about how it is work ...
Every one should read
This book is wonderful! I enjoy many of Thich's writings but this book specifically profoundfully and peacefully addresses ways to combat what we are experiencing at this time, and at many levels through out the world. Both my partner and I have found deep changes happening for both of us simply by reading this book.
The 12-Step Buddhist: Enhance Recovery from Any Addiction
Atria Books/Beyond Words, 2009
i loved this book
i absolutely loved this 12 step buddhist book being a recovering person myself i always had a hard time with the second step, because being a buddhist i could never grasp a concept of a higher power other than buddha. and at all of my meetings they always talked about god, as in the god of our understanding, well i finally realized through reading this book, that it is ok for buddha to be the god ...
If the Buddha Dated: A Handbook for Finding Love on a Spiritual Path
For personal and professional use!
As a life coach, I am always looking for great books to help me in my own growth and to pass on to clients who might benefit from them. I found _If the Buddha Dated_ to be an extraordinary book that not only deals with the modern complexities of relationships, but also the tenets of Buddhism. This book helped me understand basics of the Buddhist philosophy of being present. Previously, I ...
Wisdom of the East Buddhist Psalms translated from the Japanese of Shinran Shonin
Public Domain Books, 2004
Not even worthwhile when free
This translation is odd in its overlay of antiquated King James style language onto a Japanese Buddhist text ... absurd and not useful. There is also the matter of the editor's complete misunderstanding of the relationship between Sakyamuni Buddha and Amitabha Buddha due to the contrived overlay of Christian theological models onto Jodo Shinshu. If this is to be your introduction to Jodo Shinshu, ...
Dhammapada, a collection of verses; being one of the canonical books of the Buddhists

Buddha at Bedtime: Tales of Love and Wisdom for You to Read with Your Child to Enchant, Enlighten and Inspire
LOVED this book!
No matter your religious affiliation, or lack of, this book is FANTASTIC and can be read to ALL ages...really. Our girls are 4 and 5 and the 4 year old rarely has the attention span for many of the books our 5 year old does. But, since this book's stories are short, they are perfect for kids (and adults...my Mom liked it so much she bought one for herself!) and adults alike. At the end of the ...

The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming Heart and Mind--A New Perspective on Christ and His Message
A Refreshing Naming of the Problem
Abject moral depravity from birth as the problem for which Western Christianity is the answer has never struck me as an accurate naming of the problem. Given the growing number of people drifting away from church and the many more who pay no attention to the church at all, it appears I am not alone. If only we could do a better job naming the problem. Perhaps then we could see Jesus as the one ...
How to See Yourself As You Really Are
The Dalai Lama is such a down-to-earth person with such compassion for people - something truly refreshing. Here he introduces us to the human struggle between the conditioned world of thoughts, memories and perceptions in which we spend most of our lives, and a totally different way of being as the unconditioned space that contains all. We are not our thoughts or even our emotions although we ...
Confession of a Buddhist Atheist
Spiegel & Grau
Rebirth as Metaphor: Reading between Gotama's lines
I had the pleasure of hearing Stephen Batchelor at a reading of Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist a couple of months ago in Los Angeles where I picked up the book. First, just as a work of history (ancient and modern) it is delightful. Batchelor is basically into mining the Pali Sutras, in part as a socio-political text, and has found amazing stuff. Here is how he describes the dialog between ...
