Overview

The best-selling author of Awakening the Buddha Within addresses life's most provocative and tantalizing questions simply, directly, and powerfully.

Every life is a journey through the unknown. Along the way, however, we tend to encounter the same perplexing questions again and again. Some are cosmic enigmas that have always tested the human mind: What is my purpose in life? What happens after I die? Others are puzzles presented by daily life in modern society: What, if anything, justifies assisted suicide? What is my personal responsibility to the homeless? According to Lama Surya Das, one of the foremost Western Buddhist scholars and teachers, the more we seek to resolve these mysteries, the more fully we live.

Along with his own personal beliefs, the author presents a variety of thoughtful points of view representing different schools of Buddhism, other religions, spirituality in general, and pragmatism. The Big Questions challenges readers in the most stimulating and thoughtful way to formulate individual, authentic responses to life's big questions.

I believe I have all of his writings and this ebook is one of the best. I was fascinated by the title to begin with, and the face that Lama Surya Das wrote it - well it was a no-brainer as to whether I would buy and read it. But something happened when I started to read - I could only read one question and answer at a time - I had to have time to let it all soak into the mind. His questions are some I have asked myself many times, but his answers are pure deliverance of what is within LSD. A gifted writer - a beautiful huamn being - and a true reflection of what he teaches. Thank you LSD for this work of pure love. Please continue to deliver whatever else you have within your heart.
