Overview

Awakening the Buddha Within will be definitive--the first real audiobook of Western Buddhism, explaining American and Western Buddhism not only from the heart, but also from the ground up. Awakening the Buddha Within will cover the traditional Three Trainings for Enlightenment: Ethics, Meditation, and Wisdom, and includes all the major concepts of Tibetan Buddhism from the Eight Steps to Enlightenment to the Six Principles of Enlightened Living, and sets them in the context of our Western lives and experiences. As few people today are able to spend countless hours in meditation and in direct instruction from master to disciple, Lama Surya Das takes what he knows of these traditional teachings, and shows how this wisdom can be integrated into life here and now, in homes and marriages, relationships, with family, and on the job. For new and experienced seekers, Awakening the Buddha Within will help them lead more inner-directed, spiritual lives, and it will teach listeners how to integrate this spirituality into everything they do, day to day.

I love this book. It really opens your eyes to the wonders of Buddhist thinking, and the path to a better life. Highly recommended!

This was an excellent book that I, one day, intend to raise my children by. The non-Buddhist, such as myself, can still find great value in this classic piece of literature. Although all that is in the book may not appear to be realistic to the contemporary reader, how many ideals ARE truly realistic? Lama Das outlines simple ways to become dependent upon none but self for inner peace, yet being aware of the self as part of the one collective of existence. Awakening the Buddha Within is a poignant, yet simply understood collection of Buddhist thought and teachings that anyone in search of guidelines to attaining true inner peace bereft of constructs and dogmatic concepts can enjoy. PEACE.

One of the best buddhist books on the market.

A good book for beginners. A lot of information about Buddhism which I did not know. I found it hard as a Westerner to fully appreciate the difficulty the author who is from the USA must have had in making Buddhism his life. Although I am a begginner I am still open to other ideas and not ready to say I want to become a Buddhist. However, there are a lot of good things to say about their teachings

Lam Surya Das, the 'deli-lama', is the genuine article. He writes from a Jewish-American upbringing and a Buddhist education and tells how to integrate our Western culture with Eastern wisdom and practice. Changed my life.
