9780061711244: The Heart of the Revolution: The Buddha's Radical Teachings on Forgiveness, Compassion, and Kindness

"The Buddha's teachings are not a philosophy or a religion; they are a call to action and invitation to revolution." Noah Levine, author of the national bestseller Dharma Punx and Against the Stream, is the leader of the youth movement for a new American Buddhism. In Heart of the Revolution, he offers a set of reflections, tools, and teachings to help readers unlock their own sense of empathy and compassion. Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within, declares Levins to be "in the fore among Young Buddhas of America, a rebel with both a good cause and the noble heart and spiritual awareness to prove it," saying, "I highly recommend this book to those who want to join us on this joyful path of mindfulness and awakening."

Review:

"A passionate and timely appeal to overcome self-centredness through love and compassion, combined with eminently practical meditations to help you do so."--Stephen Batchelor, author of Confession of a Buddhist Atheist

"The Heart of the Revolution is refreshing, relevant and to the point. A great manual for developing love and compassion in these difficult times."--Martine Batchelor, Author of Let Go and The Spirit of the Buddha

"You can feel it in the very sentences - Levine's earnest drive to share what he's learned, to bring us along into the open heart of revolution. This is a terrific new take on the old teachings - and I believe him. I want to join."--Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones

"It offers a fresh look at mercy, a term not frequently used in Buddhism; includes an extensive commentary on the Metta Sutta; gives the lowdown on personal and romantic love; and explores cosmology and the three personality types according to traditional Buddhist thought."--Shambhala Sun

From the Back Cover:

Noah Levine has become the voice of the next generation of American Buddhism. In The Heart of the Revolution, he invites us on a journey to discover the loving heart. Despite being an acclaimed Buddhist teacher, Levine doubted whether he could ever release the anger deep within. After many years he finally realized the truth of this essential Buddhist belief--compassion is a natural quality of the heart that is often lying dormant, waiting to be uncovered. Levine now reveals the tools that helped him embrace his true Buddha nature. The practices he describes in this book are not a quick fix but a map to a hidden treasure. Free yourself from the unnecessary suffering of life and join the rebellion fueled not by hatred but by forgiveness, compassion, and kindness.
