Transformative

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

This is the single most useful gift I was ever given. I rate it purely on the sections read by Soygal Rinpoche whose voice seems to resonate with the peace and compassion he is teaching. Some of the other sections can feel a bit long but all contain useful advice for living and dying. It has changed my life. Even if it doesn't change yours it's worth it just to hear John Cleese being serious

Too simple for some - not simple enough for others, but for me a clear distilation of what Mathieu Ricard has learned and lost sitting at the feet of his teachers. Expressed in a way which sits comfortably between Tibetan and European thought, its short sections and simple teaching have been helpful to me.
