Publisher's Summary

Everyone needs to feel connected, to love and feel loved, to reach out to others and communicate in order to overcome alienation, loneliness, and a feeling of being disconnected. In Awakening the Buddhist Heart, Surya Das shows you how to reach inward and outward. By developing spiritual intelligence, a sense of compassion that helps us be more sensitive, more aware of our own feelings and the feelings of those around us, we become more intuitive; we relate better and love better. Cultivating spiritual intelligence and learning how to connect will improve our capacity for intimacy, making us better mates, friends, parents, and co-workers; it helps all of us to become more giving and brings us fulfillment, meaning, and love.Using down-to-earth, everyday experiences and stories, as well as specific ancient Buddhist practices and mediations, Surya Das illustrates how to develop authentic presence, how to connect to our own experience, build deeper relationships, embrace life's lessons, as well as learn how to love what you don't like. With tremendous insight he explores specific ways in which we can more fruitfully relate to our own experiences as well as each other in today's fast-paced, complicated, and often confusing world.

Not much here!

I was disappointed in this work. It was a little too mundane for me,
and a little trite. I would recommend other audible titles on buddhism and insight by Pema Chodron, Shinzen Young or Thich Nhat Hahn.
The most wonderful, informative and entertaining work on Buddhism on audible is "The Middle Way-Buddhism."
As for "Awakening the Buddhist Heart", not that enlightening nor informative.
