How can I be the person I want to be when I’m stuck in a job I hate? How is it possible to stay present in an era of nearly constant distractions? Can I pick someone up at a bar or club and still call myself spiritual? This nitty-gritty guide to life for the spiritual-but-not-necessarily-religious uses Buddhist teachings to answer those burning questions and a host of others related to going out, relationships, work, and social action.
Based on Lodro Rinzler’s popular advice columns, Walk like a Buddha offers wisdom that can be applied to just the sort of dilemmas that tend to arise for anyone making even a modest attempt to walk like a Buddha - that is, to live with honesty, wisdom, and compassion in the face of whatever life surprises you with.
Very good book. Easily digestible. Can't wait to read other books by this exceptional author.
What did you love best about Walk like a Buddha?
I enjoyed Lodro's narration - he seemed very authentic and plugged into what he was talking about.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I felt like this was really just a sampler... I think I would've liked much more depth in some areas and complete removal of other content.
A great beginner's buddhist intro. Maybe not great for people looking to specifics of technique or practice.
Very easy to follow. Great examples. Will read again and recommend to friends and family.
Honest and practical wisdom as to how to apply Buddha's teachings in our everyday life.
