Overview

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

The desire to find answers to life's vast questions has always been a compelling force for mankind. Our journey through the unknown marks us with perplexities as we contemplate the existence of God, love, purpose and meaning, and happiness itself. In this book, national best-selling author Lama Surya Das, an esteemed American Buddhist leader, explores fourteen vital questions impelled by his own life experiences as well as Buddhist perspectives and universal wisdom teachings. Lama Surya Das explores in detail such questions as:

  • Does God exist?
  • What happens after death?
  • What is happiness and where can it be found?
  • What is love and how do I find it?
  • What is the meaning of life and what is my purpose here?
  • Who am I?

The purpose of The Big Questions is to help individuals learn to practice the sacred art of inquiry, fully realize their own essential questions, and find the genuine pathway of self-discovery while inspiring our quest and furthering spiritual literacy. The author provides a gateway that allows us to open ourselves to questioning so that we may, over time, learn to respond to life's ultimate questions more wisely. Regardless of one's personal beliefs or religious background, Surya Das's insights and illuminations can be invaluable to anyone in search of finding deeper meaning in life.

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.
