    One thought on “Transform Your Life: A Blissful Journey”

    1. The NKT, led by Kelsang Gyatso, is sadly inauthentic and yes, a cult. If you hear stories from the people who have been on the inside, it's not pretty. Things that Gyatso himself have said point to this being purely materialistic. He despises Westerners. He wants NKT temples built in every city. The temples and the image are more important than the teachings. The eightfold path isn't even taught. This is sadly a scam. Read the original sutras themselves to find out what authentic Buddhism is abo [...]

    2. I read this as part of my weekly Buddhist meditation class. For anyone who has curiosity about Kadampa Buddhism, this is a wonderful way to get started. It's pretty much "Buddhism 101" and creates a do-able and practical path for embarking on the path to enlightenment. Some of the concepts covered here are heavy and difficult, but the author has a straightforward and deceptively simple way of explaining them and rooting them in the real world.

    3. This book is a guide to learning how to shift one's perspective in order to be more compassionate towards all livings beings. It I simply written and brought me to tears multiple times! My favorite section in the book is about the unconditional love of a mother and using that example to spread love to all beings. It's a Buddhist book but the positive ideas in it can be easily used.

    4. A rather irritating book that prompts us to stop focusing on everyday 'delusions' to channel our prayers and efforts towards others and others' sufference in order to develop compassion, first, and then wisdom, the ultimate goal being enlightnment to escape samsara. To transform one's life, according to Gyatso, means to revolutionise the way we see ourselves (we simply do NOT exhist) and the world (it's fake) to move beyond appearances and put others before us.I obviously struggle with the idea [...]

    5. The book started off really well. it was a good overview of buddhist foundations and concepts but the last part of the book was teaching you to become more detached from people objects and your body which is where i start to fail in the belief, so i think i'll stick with my nichiren buddhist practice as this is just not for me.

    6. Similar to Howt to Solve our Human Problems, only focuses on Lamrim, the 21 daily meditations that are the stages of the path to Enlightenment.

    7. This book is an excellent commentary on Buddha's teachings, coming from an author with impeccable lineage credentials. It is however not necessarily an easy read for those with no experience of the basic Buddhist view. Although the start is always welcoming, the first 'punch' as such is pointing out our predicament, which is not great. We suffer and we don't want to, just as Buddha Shakyamuni points out, and it would be difficult to disagree. This can be hard for some to hear, especially if what [...]

    8. The book was not an easy read. There is lots of information, most of which I could grasp and attempt to put into practice. The last chapter, however,Ultimate Truth, which teaches the meaning of emptiness was totally foreign to me. I had difficulty understanding the concept. This is not a criticism of the book or the author, it's merely letting others know that I will require much more teaching or reading to understand this concept.

    9. The book is easy to read and understand. A lot of the text is quite repetitive, but it's probably because the concepts are so simple. The beauty of it all, the simplicity and the repetition, is that the concepts stick and I found myself applying them in my daily life without really thinking about it. Good place to start if you are interested in feeling more peaceful.

    10. Much less confusing than the rest of his books. It was interesting to see his view on things. This book was much less confusing than the rest of his books, which are impossible to read. I'm still contemplating the things that he's talking about.

    11. This book was read by staff member Katey Ribchester for her Six Book Challenge:"This a buddhist Dharma. A great book to become mindful and to reflect on your life and meditate. Worked well with a combination of going to temple."

    12. Realmente la transforma de seguir sus ense├▒anzas, no es como cualquier otro producto en TV que miente al decirlo. :D
