    A great foundation for Buddhism (and easy to relate to)

    As one of the first books I've read on Buddhism, I found Joyful Path to be a great place to start. I had a basic understanding of Buddhism when I picked this up, and was pleased that it satisfied my wish to learn more. It's amazingly easy to relate to because of the style of writing.

    A Must-Have For Your Dharma Library

    Joyful Path of Good Fortune is a book for everyone who is interested in buddhism. In Geshe Kelsang's clear and precise style, the fundamental principles of kadampa buddhist beliefs are illuminated and made accessible. In the book are in-depth explanations of karma, emptiness, right living, and enlightenment, interspersed with stories of past buddhist masters' lives. It is a book one keeps coming back to. The first read is a delight--all subsequent readings are both a pleasure and a help along the path to enlightenment and successful living.
