Prolific author Ogyen Trinley Dorje (The Future Is Now; Traveling the Path of Compassion) is the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and the spiritual head of one of the main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, but this man revered as His Holiness by his followers is not remote from the experiences and challenges of everyday Americans. In fact, his newest book is the harvest of a recent month in India in which he discussed a variety of topics with sixteen American college students. Thus, the teachings in The Heart Is Noble cover contemporary issues including gender identities, food justice, the future of the planet, and sustainable compassion. A wisdom that transcends cultural differences; editor's recommendation.
