I hesitate reading any more Buddhist books because they all tend to be introductory works.

his nove does introduced already familiar concepts but has advice on how to practice, complete with concrete examples.

“ To this day, I feel ncomfortable when people ask which Buddhist tradition I follow, for in my heart I ’ m simply another human being seeking the path to appiness and a pat to get my life meaningful to others. “ Labels too often divide people.

Moreover, today as much as possible I ’ ll avoid harming others and ill be kind and help them. ” Entrust myself to the 3 Jewels ( Buddha, Dharma, Sangha).
