Using delightful and deceptively powerful stories from everyday experiences, beloved Buddhist teacher Sylvia Boorstein demystifies spirituality, charts the path to happiness through the Buddha's basic teachings, shows how to eliminate hindrances to clear seeing, and develops a realistic course toward wisdom and compassion. A wonderfully engaging guide, full of humor, memorable insights, and love.
Buy this as a gift to yourself (one that keeps on giving!)
This is a book that's easy and short to read yet packed well beyond the number of its pages with value for readers. You do NOT have to be Buddhist or know anything about it in order to get value from this down to earth, well written book. I have so many favorite parts within it and I keep it on my bedside table for quick snippet, last-read-of-the-day moments. Yes, it's dated but just as helpful and relevant today as it was yesterday and will be 20 years from now. Thank you for being you, Sylvia Boorstein!
Read this Book!
I’ve read this book many times, and bought it for nearly everyone I love! Ms. Boorstein takes a complicated subject and breaks it into readily digestible and “stick with you” pieces. Truly one of my favorite books.
