AIMING FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATION. A book like this can be read on many levels among us non-Tibetans. There are seeds of thought in it on how to lead one's life so as to avoid dangers and constantly be fit and bear fruit. Many of these thoughts stem from Buddhism, and may grow in foreign soil, continue to grow, and yield good results if carefully planted and helped on and up. Other thoughts embedded in proverbs have other origins, and are likely to reflect various conditions that don't apply in Norway, for example.
To some of us, a big question is how to employ suitable seeds to make our lives well lived, or if not well lived, better than otherwise, or if not better and nobler, a little more enlightened.
One great question is how to apply seeds of thoughts from Tibet - to get many and outstanding results of seeds that are carefully planted in foreign soil of different conditions and traditions.
By using kernels of wisdom, applying sagacity, one helps making successes in life and bear fruits naturally in the fields they grow and thrive - bears fruit if they may be applied in one's ways of living.

LEARNING KEY ISSUES. On a lower level than applying sound, robust and fertile wisdom in proverbs and teachings of Tibet, proverbs lead into knowing key issues of Tibetans and then ourselves. Many key issues of life are similar, others different, and that is not such a terrible thing . . . provided we have our own spiritual go, and can stand ideas of others, even appreciate many of them, and even apply some in our own living. Maybe in the kitchen garden at first and then further on.
So maybe we may learn from proverbs and apply some of the sound wisdom found in the book.
