5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Buddhism: The path of Compassion & Wisdom
This is an invaluable book which I enjoyed thoroughly, I read extensively about buddhism, various authors, traditions etc and Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is one of my favourite authors who I feel speaks from experience which is rare these days.
The difficulty with Buddhism is that you have to apply consistent effort to make progress, this simply isn't fashionable these days...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not particularly helpful
If you're already familiar with Buddhism you might find this series of books useful, but as a beginner I was put off by the unfriendly and unapproachable writing style and the obscure language without much guidance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Buddhism: The path of Compassion & Wisdom, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom - Volume 3 Prayers for Daily Practice (Kindle Edition)
This is an invaluable book which I enjoyed thoroughly, I read extensively about buddhism, various authors, traditions etc and Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is one of my favourite authors who I feel speaks from experience which is rare these days.
The difficulty with Buddhism is that you have to apply consistent effort to make progress, this simply isn't fashionable these days when we are so concerned with instant gratification so it will not appeal to someone looking for " a quick fix" or someone looking for modern psychological explanations of the condensation of ancient wisdom contained in this book.
One of the things I enjoy the most is how easy it is to read and digest section by section.
This is; as always my personal view which I hope helps you on your spiritual or intellectual journey- Happy reading

5.0 out of 5 stars The prayers for accomplishing, 4 Nov 2011
This review is from: Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom - Volume 3 Prayers for Daily Practice (Kindle Edition)
Volume One and Two are the instructions for what we can do if we have the wish and apply some effort. Volume Three is a presentation of the prayers which are the method for accomplishing our goal. What beautiful ways of thinking. Thank you to Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for including the complete path to enlightenment in the book Modern Buddhism - the paths of Sutra and Tantra.

As a companion to parts 1 and 2, book 3 provides a way to put the teachings into practice by providing prayers from traditional sources and a very comprehensive glossary

This review is from: Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom - Volume 3 Prayers for Daily Practice (Kindle Edition)
Can't believe this is free - makes sense to my compassionate self - but rare in this day and age to find a published book - even if its purpose is to ease the suffering of all individuals - to be offered with no cost

Thank you so much.

This has to be the best self help book on the market. You don't have to be a Buddhist to get something from it. It could herald a new, happier, peaceful you. A book we should all read.
