Where to begin?,
This review is from: Introduction to Buddhism: An Explanation of the Buddhist Way of Life (Paperback)
When I bought this book, I knew very little about Buddhism. So, I thought 'where do I begin?' because the subject is so vast. Luckily this little book crossed my path. While I did not understand some of it the first go-through, it pointed me in the right direction - towards a mind wishing to develop loving kindness, compassion, and wisdom. Introduction to Buddhism covers so much and is so profound, it is well worth reading. Every time I read this book, I find something new. Now I have such a deep appreciation for the author Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. His authentic presentation is clear and precise with each word conveying deep meaning. Most certainly this can only come from his own personal knowledge and deep understanding of Buddha's instructions.
