Library JournalDas, a Western-born Buddhist, longtime student and teacher of Eastern religions, and lama in the Tibetan Buddhist order and the founder of Dzogchen Foundation in Massachusetts and California, hopes to persuade all of us that we can both locate and ultimately become bodhisattvas in this life. The ten "practices" along the way include generosity, ethics, patience, and the like, and this book is a full-length effort to show us how these practices are to be accomplished, as much for the sake of the world, which needs the "active compassion" of bodhisattvas, as for ourselves. Das writes with fluency and charm, and this book should be of strong interest to practicing Buddhists. Recommended for most collections.
