This review is from: Eight Steps to Happiness: The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness (Paperback)
This book has become my 'bible'. I refer to it over and over again. In simple and easy to read language it takes you through the steps on how to find happiness through caring, compassion and love. It takes you away from self-centredness to introspection. The author has the ability to translate such profound teachings into a daily and practical method for coping with the very human frustrations we all experience. Not only does he give us easy access to these teachings, he also guides us through practical applications of the teachings. It has changed my life, my outlook on life, my view of the world and people. It is simply wonderful! Buy it, read it, you will not be disappointed.

I have found Gyatso's books VERY disappointing. But then, if I had realised he wasn't a monk, and was infact a cult-leader before I bought them, I wouldn't have had such high expectations.

It would be useful to know if reviewers who have given five stars are followers of the New Kadampa tradition of buddhism, of which Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is the founder and leader.
