A beautifully written book that will inspire me for the rest of my life. Yes, I am a meditator of many years. But, please understand, you do not need to be a Buddhist or a meditator or even the slightest bit religious to be inspired by this masterpiece of spiritual writing. I will read it and read it and read it again and each time I am sure I will get more and more from it.

Format: Hardcover
As in 'Eight steps to happiness' this wonderful author presents truly practical methods for improving compassion for those around us. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso shows us how we can weaken and ultimately overcome our habitual ways of negative and destructive thinking so we may find greater happiness in life. This master clearly speaks from the position of someone who has personally achieved all the teachings and discovered for himself their beauty. Also explains how what appear to be problems and difficulties can be transformed into causes for happiness.

Format: Paperback
If you want to get your hands on some practical solutions for unhappiness then this book contains A LOT. It is a Buddhist text and that means it references things like past & future lives, prayer etc. Maybe you're interested in that stuff, maybe you're not. But I think everyone should read it for the sections on 'what is self cherishing' 'taking & giving' & 'transforming adverse conditions'. Buddhism is just inner science at the end of the day and if something is wrong in your life (ie, you're suffering') then it's time to look in your mind (where the suffering is) and learn how to fix it. Beautiful text.
