July 2003
A leading Buddhist teacher explains how important it is to cultivate mindfulness, compassion and wisdom. These three qualities have become the core of western Buddhist practice - a modern Buddhist tradition founded on the richness of the past but also rooted in contemporary personal experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beatuiful written book for the 21st century 6 Aug 2002
By A Customer
It took me one week to read this exquisitly written book, that is so easy to understand chapter by chapter.
Joseph Goldstein has written each chapter in a way that it draws you in deeper and deeper as you go on from the brief hisorical history of Buddhism (chapter two)to how it can alter both your out look on life to your life its self.This book not only moved me but made me think about how I lead life.After reading this I emailed all my friends telling them of this powerful book.
I would suggest this book to everybody and deeply think this will be one of the best books this year and could be a classic of the 21st century.
If you read any book this year please make sure this is the next one it will deeply move you and open both your eyes and mind to life,and how it should be lived.A perfect guide to those searching for answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 1 Nov 2003
Buddhism has developed an abundance of diverse sects and practicing methods in its long history in entirely different cultural environments such as India, China, Tibet etc. Many of them have been isolated from each other for centuries. Now teachers of all lineages meet in the West, and Western disciples often cross the borders of sectarian divisions. We have means of travelling and communication now that were not available in ancient times, and the open, democratic societies of the West strongly encourage investigation beyond traditional constraints. This is the ground from where Goldstein launches his project to identify the core all buddhist traditions have in common and the outline of a cross-sectarian Western buddhism that is beginning to stand on its own feet now. Joseph Goldstein is a renowned meditation teacher who has studied in different Asian traditions for many years, he knows what he is talking about. I strongly recommend this book to newcomers to buddhism and experienced Buddhists alike.
