  1. I could so use the thoughts from these writers! A hectic time of change, it’s my practice that keeps me steady and I would love to read these thoughts from so many most excellent teachers.

  2. Shambhala publications has been such a stalwart for excellence for so many years. Anything coming from you is good so it must have been tough to put this one together!

  3. Thank you for the chance to obtain a copy of this book!I’m always looking for ways to gain insight and be inspired!

  4. How absolutely wonderful of you to offer this! I’ve read and enjoyed all of the previous years’ “Best of Buddhist Writing”, and am looking forward to this year’s version as well! Through a giveaway or the bookstore, I’m anxious to read the wisdom. Thank you….

  5. Thank you for your generous giveaway. It looks like a wonderful collection of essays. Thank you for your fine work and products.

  6. I love Shambala Publications and would love to receive a free copy of this book! Thank you for giving me a chance!

  7. Thank you for the opportunity to get inpiration and insight through the best of Buddhist writing! If I don’t get this through you– I’ll have to pick up a copy myself!

  8. With authors like these, this collection of writings fits our world’s need for understanding and living the practices of loving kindness. Perspectives on fear and anger, learning how to meditate, and speaking/tweeting no evil all sound like topics we can use in the present.

  9. We educate through our process of opening the heart, sharing as living examples of the goodness of our own natures and the knowing that we are all Buddhas. We all share the Buddha nature inherent in our souls. Our mission is to reveal it and find the capacity to show others through compassion and grace how to tap into their own Buddha nature.

  10. I’ve considered Pema Chodron a teacher of mine for several years. She has tought me to smile at fear! My Buddhist practice has come far. I began because I have anxiety disorder and agoraphobia. I was seeking something, anything to help me to help myself.
    I’ve found that in Buddhism.
    I’m not very familiar with some of the people this book mentions. I’m excited to read it and learn more along my journey in facing this disorder head on while smiling at fear!
    Thank you for the opportunity to win this book!
