A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World: For Tibet, with Love
A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World: For Tibet, with Love
by Isabel Losada
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be compulsory reading!, 30 Sep 2008
This is an excellent book. Isabel Losada writes beautifully about her personal experience in trying to live by the serenity prayer - in having the courage to change the things she can, the serenity to accept the things she cannot change and the search to find the wisdom she needs to know the difference. The book is inspiring, funny and moving. If you have an interest in the Tibetan cause, you will be cheering for Isabel all the way. If you have no knowledge or interest in the Tibetan cause you will be drawn into Isabel's very up-close and personal challenges and still come away cheering. The lesson to take away from her story is that we can all do something - even if we are not all capable of change on a grand scale, the book teaches us that small actions count and that every act of compassion is worthwhile. This book is a definite 'must' if you are feeling particularly disillusioned or uninspired with life. Read it and be revived!

I can only sum up this series in one sentence: I laughed 'til I cried. (And so did the rest of the family).

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile purchase, 3 Feb 2005
This review is from: Awakening Compassion (Audio CD)
This is a worthwhile purchase if you already have a little knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism and, even better, if you have some experience of using TB methods of meditation. Pema Chodron has an easy-listening style, she speaks with clarity and with humour and I'm sure anybody with any kind of curiosity about their spirituality would benefit from listening to these teachings. I rated it four stars because I believe it is a little expensive, but, hey, you can't put a price on spiritual growth!
