    A Must Read

    I whole-heartedly recommend this book to anyone, friends, family, and strangers. Nagapriya took ideas from traditional Buddhist doctrines and presented them as clear, modern explanations to what it means to be human. At the end of each chapter I was eager to find out what I would learn in the next. I feel that if everyone read books like Exploring Karma and Rebirth, the world would be a much happier, peaceful place. It opens your eyes to what is inside of you and right in front of you, but we are often too blind to see. Reading this book has the potential to chip away at the reader's comfort zone and reveal the magnificent truths to being human.
