What made the experience of listening to Petra on the Path of Buddha the most enjoyable?

Like Petra, I too, dislike the winter and spring and love the summer. This made me for a moment feel like it's almost summer when in reality even spring is still just a whisper of a shadow. I should try to take in some of Darśana's wisdom. Maybe I'll even give meditation a chance.

What other book might you compare Petra on the Path of Buddha to and why?

This made me want to read/listen to Kahlil Gibran's prophet, again.

Have you listened to any of Lizzie Jones Stables’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. I will check out the other Petra books, though.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, definitely.

Any additional comments?

I could not help but admire Darśana's patience throughout the story :)
