    Beautiful Book with Depth and Inspiration

    I have practiced Buddhism for many years and found this book a wonderful addition to my library. It clearly takes the reader step-by-step into the practice of Buddhism to help enhance every aspect of living. The meditation exercises through out the book are clear and easy to follow. I also found the discussion of topics like emptiness, Mind, and Enlightenment instructive. The section on art helped to stimulate my creativity. The final chapter, will guide anyone to better integrate enlightenment into everyday living. I highly recommend this book to both experienced Buddhists and to beginners who would like to experience some of the ways that Buddhism can enhance life.
