Publisher's Summary

It can be hard for those of us living in the 21st century to see how 14th-century Buddhist teachings still apply. When you’re trying to figure out which cell phone plan to buy or brooding about something someone wrote about you on Facebook, lines like "While the enemy of your own anger is unsubdued, though you conquer external foes, they will only increase" can seem a little obscure. Thubten Chodron’s illuminating explication of Togmay Zangpo’s revered text, The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas, doesn’t just explain its profound meaning; in dozens of passages she lets her students and colleagues share first-person stories of the ways that its teachings have changed their lives. Some bear witness to dramatic transformations - making friends with an enemy prisoner-of-war, finding peace after the murder of a loved one - while others tell of smaller lessons, like waiting for something to happen or coping with a minor injury.

Pretty good

This gave a very thorough perspective of Buddhism. Lots to ponder on. What Makes You Not a Buddhist jived a little better with me, but I still appreciated most of the lessons this one had to offer.

So very practical and concise.

This is a wonderful book on the 37 verses of Bodhisattvas. Clear explanation on each verse accompanied with modern day reflections on the path from a variety of practitioners experiences.

Some say the title doesn't fit, however I believe it does, very well. If we were to believe everything we thought we'd never get anywhere close to even an aspiration to help others, let alone all others.

Loved it. Will re-listen too.

Excellent read!

Am now on my 3rd read thru/listen ... an excellent commentary on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva.
