Publisher's Summary

If you want to find inner peace and wisdom, you don't need to move to an ashram or monastery. Your life, just as it is, is the perfect place to be. Jack Kornfield, one of America's most respected Buddhist teachers, shares this and other key lessons gleaned from more than 40 years of committed study and practice. Topics include:

  • How to cultivate loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity
  • Conscious parenting
  • Spirituality and sexuality
  • The way of forgiveness
  • Committing ourselves to healing the suffering in the world

Bringing Home the Dharma includes simple meditation practices for awakening our buddha nature - our wise and understanding heart - amid the ups and downs of our ordinary daily lives.

    "I don't know what to say."

    So professional. Extremely relevant.

    The insight on adult and children's perspectives is worth the price of admission, alone.

    The detailed accounts of the spiritual retreats is also helpful for mediating on purpose beyond observing awareness.

    You are gonna get tools for myriad of psychological constructs.

    If you are considering picking this up. Do it. What's fifteen dollars, anyways?

    "Perfection. Sheer audible/literary Perfection."

    The content of this book will change the life of anyone who really hears it, who truly "reads" it.
    The content of this book is only matched with the glorious sound of its main narrator: Edoardo Ballerini. Undoubtedly the most profound book I've ever come across, & certainly the most influential, 2nd only to the Holy Bible, from which I believe. However, the Dharma, as you'll learn, can be lived, & breathed, & practiced in all of us, through all of us. Upon completing this work, I immediately began listening to it again.
    Simply beautiful. What are you holding on to?

    "Strong Sense Of "I""
    Any additional comments?

    The book was a lot of self promotion on the part of the author. He has a strong sense of "I". Amusing that a book on Buddhist dharma has so many sentences that start with the word "I". For serious students, or those that wish to become serious students, of Buddha Dharma this is not the book for them.

    "Worth Your Time!"

    Enjoyed this book a great deal. As usual Jack's way of examining and explaining the 'middle way' is easy to understand and digest. An interesting perspective of many years practice. Would suggest this to anyone interested in words of honest lived wisdom.

    Data driven!!! Human and social liberal, fiscal conservative, of the old school. I like non-fiction, history and science, but sometimes read fiction. Favorite book is 100 Years of Solilitude.

    "Do something and sit there!"

    Other reviews explain that this a compilation of previous essays. A fact I missed if it was in the introduction. That explains a lot about the 'flow' the book. Putting that aside the book gives a mixture of biography and analysis with some hints about practice. I liked the narrator's voice, it was calming and soothing. It made me realize that there was a wealth of variety in Buddhist practice and described the goals of Buddhist practice.
