Are you ready for self-transformation? Many spiritual teachers promise transformation, but Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff delivers. Gurdjieff (1872-1949) was born in Alexandropol on the border of Russia and Turkey. Gurdjieff's teachings contain many concepts that, taken together, are referred to as the Work. The idea behind the Work is that our first birth is our physical body, which is all we need to get through life. But we are capable of developing into something higher; just as an acorn can stay an acorn and die or develop into an oak tree....

While many accounts of the Buddha’s life mix legend and history, this compelling new biography discriminates between fact and fiction to reveal Gautama, the remarkable human being behind the myth, and sheds new light on his teachings. Plunging us into the noises, smells and jostling streets of Gautama’s world, Vishvapani Blomfield brings the Buddha to life as a passionate and determined individual - a strikingly modern figure who rejected contemporary beliefs.

I never written a review before but this book captivated me from the start.

A wonderful story brought to life by Jonathan Keeble.

I've gained a deeper understanding of the roots of Buddhism, of peace, love and joyful wisdom.

I couldn't put it down. It was vivid and informative and pleasure to listen to all the way through.

Out of my 152 audio books this is the best one I've listened to so far.

What is the meaning of life?It's a question every thoughtful person has pondered at one time or another. Indeed, it may be the biggest question of all-at once profound and universal, but also deeply personal.We want to understand the world in which we live, but we also want to understand how to make our own lives as meaningful as possible; to know not only why we're living, but that we're doing it with intention, purpose, and ethical commitment.

Where does The Meaning of Life: Perspectives from the World's Great Intellectual Traditions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My favourite audio book so far.

What did you like best about this story?

The variety of teachers and perspectives offer both great and subtle insights into the meaning of existence and our place in the puzzle.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The early chapters and the last two were the most enlightening.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but it made see where I have/had holes in whole.

Any additional comments?

This book won't give you the answer to the meaning of life straight away, but it will offer you a way to see where you need to lay down your baggage and pick up new ways of thinking. It's well presented and easy to listen to. I really enjoy this work, and I never tire of listening to it.
