Lama Marut offers the newbie a refreshing look at forgiveness, gratitude and working on a happy life. He also offers the follower a new way of looking at material they may have previously read, but needed to be reminded about again.
petty remarkable, if you follow through with what he says.
This is a self-help guide written to help people find happiness through a better understanding of the Buddhist concept of Karma. Lama Marut, a Buddhist monk, has filled the pages full of inspirational quotes and excerpts from the teachings of the Ashtavakra Gita and the Bhagavad Gita. There are also several segments taken from A guide to the Boddhisattva's way of life of Shantideva: A commentary. To help westerners better understand eastern Philosophy, the author has drawn on areas in which Budd [...]
4.5 I like this author he helps the reader easily see his message
There are a lot of positive things to take away from this book. A lot of what Lama Marut discusses is the type of knowledge many of us already have (if we have actually taken the time to navel-gaze). However, possessing that knowledge and putting it into practice are separate entities, and most of us probably need a reminder. And, if the ideas Lama Marut presents are not something a person already holds, then it's a wonderful guide, complete with modern metaphors, through the thinking process.I [...]
A very interesting book. It is challenging. Marut was a Tibetian Buddhist monk, but this seemed a more generic approach to spirituality. The ideas of being able to reinvent the past was really useful. The idea of my current actions causing future events - and in particular his dogmatic assertion that the karmic worldview was the only realistic one possible got really old. No doubt, my current thoughts and actions will effect my future, but how I respond to the events and not the events themselve [...]
I was very surprised when I enjoyed the book greatly after winning this book on good reads i thought it might be out of my realm im not very religious and while i have my own opinion i found this book not by the book it wasn't strictly religious (This is how it is and this is how it will be stuff was not in this book ) some parts were even humorous. It has definatly changed some of my ways of viewing day to day life. It has helped me understand more about myself then I ever thought any book coul [...]
This was a lot like sitting through the homilies of my childhood; boring older bloke going off about some moral or spiritual failing in all of us and how we can change that. Which is to say, sometimes medicine doesn't, and indeed isn't supposed to, taste good. I needed a dose and can move on, but it was bitter going down. (The prose was repetitive to read but perhaps an audio book would have been morepalatable? If I read parts aloud, they annoyed meless) A good slap on the bum for karmic awarene [...]
Gave it up. A good deal of it is on the podcasts I listened to some years ago, and some of it still is sterling. But a good deal is bad-mouthing other beliefs and people, a good deal of it is blowing on Marut's horn in a shriekingly annoying way, and I finally just returned it. Great disappointment, for there is a deep message in his teachings and his presentation in person is great fun. Podcasts were the best among video, book and audio. Won't re-read.
I really liked a lot of what this book had to say. I did not always appreciate how it was being said (it felt a bit condescending, which can be rather hypocritical when you think about it in context); nor did I agree wholeheartedly with every proclamation, but it is certainly worth reading and something I hope to revisit over time.
The author came across incredibly off putting for me, almost condescending and hypocritical at times, but once I got past that his actual message was powerful. I will be rereading this book in the future.
An atypical perspective on Buddhist teachings. Accessible, interesting, and as a long time reader of Buddhist topics I was pleased at how this shook up my understanding and made me perceive things from a different angle. Highly recommended.
Spiritual practice explained in plain english. Simple (but not easy), yet profound - the ideas in this book have been a part of most authentic spiritual traditions for ages and have have the power to change lives.
Are you ready to be always happy? Or at least happier?
Read it twice. Loved!
