When the Chocolate Runs Out
To know Lama Yeshe was to know he loved chocolate; it was his favorite metaphor to describe the nature of our attachments.
This funny and trenchant little volume answers the question of how we can be happy even after the "chocolate" has run out. By cutting the cords of attachment, we discover the indestructible happiness that has always been--and always will be--available to us.
Capturing the remarkable personality of Lama, who played an integral role in introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the world, When the Chocolate Runs Out will delight both readers who have known Lama Yeshe for decades and those who have never encountered this timelessly inspiring teacher.
At once lighthearted and profound, this delightful book of wisdom is a perfect companion to How to Be Happy by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
Truly love this book
It's simple and unpretentious. An easy read for someone slightly familiar with Buddhism.
Prolific book for westerners and anyone seeking happiness and wisdom
Great book for any Buddhist or non buddhist interesting in a powerful train of thought that leads to real, measurable happiness. Lama Yeshe is an incredibly insightful monk. In this book, he uses chocolate as a metaphor for "our desires". The general premise of the book is that if we rely on gaining happiness from external things, we will be let down repeatedly because all things are impermanent and therefore incapable of providing us with listing happiness. Amazing read. I also recommend his $.99 book about becoming your own therapist.
