Excellent book. We wanted to use it as reading for our weekly meditation group, but the chapters were pitched at different levels of interest and experience, so we decided not to use it. Nonetheless, this is enjoyable to read. It's the dharma.

Excellent Overview of Buddhism
I very much enjoy this book; it explains much of Buddha history and understandings of the precepts of the religion and was very helpful in guiding me on my path. I very much recommend this book to anyone interested in Buddhism basics and those who are struggling with understanding its underlying principles
Publishers Weekly, 2006-09-25 Here at last is a crisp new voice in Tibetan Buddhism. Khyentse, a lama from an influential family and Buddhist lineage in Bhutan, is also a filmmaker, responsible for the sleeper hit The Cup, about a group of Tibetan monks obsessed with soccer. The monk brings the same multicultural fluency to his first book. He can make references to Viagra and Camilla Parker-Bowles as easily as he can tell stories of the Buddha's life. With confidence tempered by wit, he cuts to the core of Buddhism: four "seals"-truths-that make up a Buddhist "right view" of the world and existence. This book is not, repeat not, about meditation. Instead, it looks at everyday life through a Buddhist lens, understanding happiness and suffering from that perspective. Enlightenment ends suffering but also trumps happiness. Khyentse writes persuasively about the importance of understanding emptiness: disappointment lessens, expectations soften, and change is not a shock. There is much food for thought in this short book for Buddhist students and for anyone interested in the ongoing adaptation of traditional Eastern wisdom into postmodern Western settings. "You can change the cup," Khyentse writes, "but the tea remains pure." (Jan. 9) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
