Teachings of the Buddha is one of them.

Teachings of the Buddha is one of them. I consider this book a great source of inspiration and definitely awe-inspiring. Whether you're a Buddhist or not, it is a must-read. It is actually a must-have, because it opens your eyes to the essentials of life.

I discovered that version by chance, by listening to the audio-book : Sayings of the Buddha: The Dhammapada (text translated by Thomas Byrom and read by Jacob Needleman) which is excellent

I discovered that version by chance, by listening to the audio-book : Sayings of the Buddha: The Dhammapada (text translated by Thomas Byrom and read by Jacob Needleman) which is excellent. The translation by Thomas Byrom is perhaps not a literal, word-by-word, technical translation, however it is a beautiful piece of literature by itself.

Jack Kornfield, one of the most respected American Buddhist teachers, has compiled these teachings to impart the essence and inspiration of Buddhism to readers of all spiritual traditions. This treasury of essential Buddhist writings draws from the most popular Indian, Tibetan, Chinese, and Japanese sources.

Following in the Buddha's footsteps, Buddhists seek to reach nirvana, or enlightenment .

Following in the Buddha's footsteps, Buddhists seek to reach nirvana, or enlightenment, a state of transcendence free from suffering, desire and the cycle of death and rebirth. Unlike Christianity or Islam, Buddhism does not have one central text that sums up the religion's basic tenets. Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind'. The book draws heavily from Kornfield's own Buddhist tradition, while also exploring wisdom from Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Sufi traditions. The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Buddhist Wisdom'.

The teachings of the Buddha and of various Chinese, Japanese and Indian Bodhisattvas are offered in this wonderful book. Each teaching is to be savored, Kornfield instructs us, so that the words may sink in and that we may connect with the teaching. I am new to Buddhism and was curious to read what he actually said. This is a wonderful book in that regard, and it gives one a great deal to reflect on. I recommend it. (If you're new to Buddhism, like me, there are several wonderful YouTube videos of talks by Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dali Lama, Pema Chodron, Jack Kornfield, Susan Piver, and many other, that will be helpful in giving you a good grounding in Buddhism. There are also magazine publications such as Lion's Roar and Buddhadharma - all of which are wonderful resources for learning about Buddhism.) All of my exploration prior to purchasing this book is helping me to get even more out of each teaching, but the book also stands on its own. You don't have to be Buddhist to get a lot out of it, either.

I was disappointed this book was so tiny, but I'm sure that's my fault for not reading the small print. The content is great, but it's about 3 inches long. And to top it off, my dog ate it yesterday.

I LOVE the Shambhala Pocket Classics series. I have probably a dozen of their titles and have replaced this one several times after losing it or giving it to a friend. The book is diverse and has nuggets of wisdom from the many branches of Buddhism and all of them are fairly short. The vignette style of the teachings makes this a great book to carry and read on a break and then just spend a few minutes contemplating the passage.

A perfect little reference - I bought this to keep in my vehicle glove compartment. A bit of wisdom and energy wherever I go!

Not bad. If you have read buddha before, then you will not find anything new in here probably. Great little pocket sized book.

This was a required text for my college Business Ethics course. I found this book to be enlightening. We read these teachings and small quotes aloud and talked about personal experiences. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and this book certainly enhanced aspects of the course. Great read. Thank you

A great collection from a range of traditions. Something in there for everyone. It is nice to have a small book to take along and yet have access to so much wisdom.
This is a somewhat dense religious text, but this translation makes it accessible. For anyone that wants to learn about Buddhism from its source, this is a good place to start.
