Review:

"Do not engage in any harmful actions; perform only those that are good. Subdue your own mind--this is the teaching of the Buddha."

From the Back Cover:

Based on the teachings of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, 'The Buddha Book' is a beautifully illustrated introduction to the most important and well-known Buddhist deities. The book presents their major characteristics, functions and histories in a clear and concise way and, along with prayers, meditations, and visualizations, it covers special rituals and blessings associated with each Buddha.

In the Buddhist tradition there are countless deities. These are embodiments of enlightened wisdom that also represent different aspects of the enlightened mind. Using a particular Buddha to meditate or work with on a daily basis can act as a sacred map for the reader, leading us to experience the healing, compassion and hope they can bring into our lives.

The Buddhas covered include the Historical Buddha, Shakyamuni: the Five Dhyani Buddhas; the Longevity Buddhas; the Mother Goddess; the Wealth Buddhas; and the Buddha of the Future. Each Buddha is introduced with a sumptuous picture and the book includes holy mantras – simple yet powerful practices for the voice – and mudras – sacred hand gestures. Also included are instructions on making tsa tsas (miniature buddhas), mandala offerings and prayer flags, and guidance on creating your own altar.

This ground-breaking guide is published with the full support of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and is Lillian Too's gift to the Buddha heart within us all.

'In order to find happiness and avoid suffering we should learn about those factors that bring happiness so we can practise them, and those factors that bring about suffering so we can avoid them.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche'
