Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book continues along the line of previous books by Dass, such as (with Paul Gorman) How Can I Help? (Knopf, 1985) and (with the Lama Foundation) Be Here Now (Crown, 1971). In explaining how one becomes compassionate or works to reduce suffering, Dass presents his own spiritual journey in the first part of the book. Although he is open to various religious and philosophical traditions, he is primarily grounded in the traditions of the East, especially Hinduism and Buddhism. The second part of the book, written by Bush, contains a discussion of principles for compassionate action, such as ``Do What You Love,'' ``Start Small,'' and ``Reflect on Your Motives.'' At the end there is not only an annotated bibliography, but an annotated directory of organizations which will appeal to those seeking to put compassion into action. Recommended. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 10/15/91.-- John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York
