"The Dalai Lama offers elegant clarity about the paradoxes at the heart of Buddhism." (Publishers Weekly)
"As a primer on living the good life, few books compete with How to Practice." (Amazon.com)
I would probably prefer print. That way I can refer back to the book for reminders.
An Open Heart. that is another by His Holiness - general in nature - pretty easy to understand
His accent made me think I was listening to the author
Yes, a visualization practice that is repeated several times throughout
I would have given this 5 stars overall but some the material was hard to grasp. The grounding and peaceful nature was a welcome addition to my day. I was sad the book had to end
This book is amazing full of wisdom and spiritually. A true gem written by The Dalai Lama, narrated by Jeff Hopkins. Jeff is very good at carrying the spiritual word. His insight is great as is his translation. This is a jewel , it is very good!
The voice is just like the writer. Many useful thoughts be told. Try to practice it in daily life, and you will find yourself happier than before.
The timeless wisdom and gentle guidance of His Excellency the Dalai Lama are beautifully narrated in this Audible offering. Only a basic knowledge of Buddhism is needed to appreciate these wonderful teachings. A copy of the printed book would be helpful if the reader wishes to follow the practices. Highly recommended!
Not a bad book but I was most definetely the target audience. People that are into yoga and buddism may be able to take more advantage of this book.
I am a Christian who has studied and appreciated Buddist and Zen philosophies for their wisdom regarding living in the present and freedom from the tyranny of material desire. I found this work both light in such general wisdom and tiresome in its emphasis on Buddism-specific religious ideology, particularly reincarnation.
Caution! Do not attempt to listen to this while driving.... You will be sleeping within minutes. I guess I am not open minded enough for this. Wish I could return it - but it was a gift : (
I am sure the hippies out there will love it! Hari Krishna... Hari Krishna..
