   Life Improvement Book If You Are Ready for It
On one hand, the book I wish I had read many years ago by Jack Kornfield was a book I have benefited greatly from. Meditation has helped me to meditate more effectively. I have become more at peace in my work and social life, he said. There are a few moments of total freedom that I find expanding day by day. On the other hand, I am not sure that I was ready for it. To benefit from its content, one has to be open to meditation, Buddhist psychology, and ready for changes to the core, he said. If you are ready for it, I strongly recommend it. It's just one of those things I have personally recommended it to friends and family members.

   Love this book- important thoughts to ponder and apply
I bought a Kindle version of the book while I was reading it. I wanted to have it with me for moments I am in waiting rooms or on planes, Mr. Kennedy said. Easy to read, and see at least one thought I want to ponder. Also, write some thoughts in your journal to reinforce the memory of them. A fiend and I are going to go through the end of applications, perhaps one week, he said. There is much to gain from this book, Michael Schweer said.

   but a great introduction to Buddhism for those whose knowledge of Buddhist ...
This book is a great introduction to Buddhism for those who have not yet developed a basic knowledge of Buddhist practices and principles. The book left me with a burning desire to expand my knowledge of Buddhism and the universal truths promoted and realized by the principles revealed in Kornfield's book. While this knowledge is possessed by many Buddhist practitioners in this world, I could see that Kornfield's experience and commitment to lifelong study and evolution through every page of his life were truly exceptional. This book is highly recommended by those who are interested in Buddhism but are not sure where to start.

I've read all the books, but this is a great book -- I loved all of it from cover to cover. It taught me a lot _ and refined a lot of what i thought I was already well versed in. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject matter.

   An amazing guide to a peaceful healthy mind
The Bhagavad Gita is full of the wisdom of the ages and of all cultures. Ancient peoples were far wiser about healthy human interaction than the speed of our modern world allow us to easily attain, he said. Very highly recommend.

   A very interesting book
If you are not interested in the Buddhist teachings, this is a good book. I meet with some women each week and we discuss a chapter, Breaux said. It really helps to talk to others about the teachings, Graham said.
