    One thought on “The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Buddhism”

    1. "Laziness will stop your progress in your spiritual practice"I find so much truth in this statement, as with many others in this little book. Laziness can come in many forms. A lack of attention, a lack of physical exercise and a total lack of effort are all prime examples.I find exercise meditative. I run every single day and I find it helps to put my life into perspective more than any traditional Buddhist practice. Sitting in the zazen position undertaking mental exercises just doesn’t work [...]

    2. Discipline is the supreme ornament and, whether worn by old, young or middle-aged, it gives birth to happiness. Dalai Lama XIVThe Dalai Lama is one of the most recognized men in the world. For such a surprisingly well-known person in the modern world and, outside of China, he has few enemies. Business leaders pay to hear him speak, although he has much more in common with Marx than Adam Smith. He is a man of compassion and peace. His exile from Tibet, although devastating, is probably what has b [...]

    3. This small book was a stocking stuffer for Christmas. Pretty and quick to read. It has some great insights but most of the quotes seem out of context, using terminology that needs explanation. The glossary at the end attempts explanation but it only succeeds as an incomprehensible, awkward info dump. Go with Thich Nath Hahn or Sharon Salzberg instead.

    4. This one's just okay. Collection of many Buddhist quotes by Dalai Lama. It's good for the ones who are really deep into Buddhism and Buddhist way of life.

    5. Some quotes are really good but in general it is like extracts from different books or student's workbook for lectures, with no relation between paragraphs and thus reading it is kind of uninteresting. It is quite short and I will read it till the end but I think I'd better re-read it when I have a better knowledge of Buddhism principles and termse rating may be changed later, when i re-read it.

    6. The title of this book is accurate: it is a little book. The book contains sayings from his holiness the Dalai Lama loosely collected into categories. Listening to the book is OK but this is better as a printed book one can refer to from time to time.

    7. Very quick book. As an audiobook, it's a little choppy. But always good to read/hear something from the Dalai Lama.

    8. Just a little something I picked up when I walked off on another adventure of self-discovery and I must say that some of the quotes in this book really spoke to me and it has helped to slowly change me for the better - for starters, my anger is nowhere near as bad as it was."If subconscious anger had a parallel in Buddhist writings, it would have to do with what is called mental unhappiness or dissatisfaction. This is regarded as the source of anger and hostility. We can see subconscious anger i [...]

    9. Buddhism is a part of our "sanatan dharma" is inculcated all the good wills of "sanatan dharama" Wht I learnt----1)⚀---importance of mental peace2)⚁---zeal to do work for self improvement3)⚂---cosmopolitan behaviourOver all, for me this book is goodtely one can learn many things ,it's up to u🔖📘

    10. Beautiful book with uplifting quotes on each page to bring warmth, happiness and peace to your every day life.

    11. This books is good for those times when you need a quick bit of motivation/inspiration in life. I wouldn’t say I’m personally the type of person who would read this book again. I would compare it to the countless amounts of social media posts you see from those types of people who want to try and make people believe they are smart or wise (you know the kind) and for that reason I gave it a 3.

    12. WE ARE THE CREATORS OF OUR OWN HAPPINESS AND SUFFERING, FOR EVERYTHING ORIGINATES IN THE MIND. SO WE NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHATEVER GOOD OR BAD WE EXPERIENCE.One can be deceived by 3 states of laziness; procrastination, doubting your abilities (inferiority) and attachment to negative actions.Cultivating closeness and warmth for others automatically puts the mind at ease.Mental unhappiness or dissatisfaction is the source of anger and hostility.Things do not remain the same and nothing [...]

    13. Buddhism described in brief adages. I thought this would be a good daily meditation book. It turned out to be better reading it front to back, although each page fits in only loosely with the ones before and after.

    14. This is a beautiful little book of the wisdom of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. It fits right in your pocket and is very easy to read and access. I won this in a contest and am so glad that I did. I will be enjoying this book for a long time.

    15. "Anything that contradicts experience and logic should be abandoned." The nicest quote from the book. It is mainly teaching people to be better through faith and the hope of Nirvana.

    16. Excellent wisdom from The Dalai Lama. Also, I am very happy to see in the back that definitions of essential terminology were included.

    17. I very concise view of Buddhism through quotes from the Dalai Lama. And it has a lovely glossary in the back.

    18. This is a great introduction to Buddhism and the power of spirituality. This has encouraged me to continue reading into meditation techniques and other activities to help with my depression

    19. If you are looking for motivational words to enhance your spiritual path, this is a very good book.
