  1. From the notable list of authors I cant tell I would definitely like to read this book! in this way, it recommends itself. My next thought was, – … and give it as a present to people I know! It would serve equally well for people who are already familiar with Buddhism and friends who are less well prepared.

  2. Perhaps this should be deemed “Cool off the Press!” What a lovely cooling, and goodness-infused read this will be–for whoever wins it. I am deeply delighted by the idea of sitting with this at some point (and am sure to enjoy lovingly taking notes on the pages).

  3. I don’t live close to any dharma centers or temples so I depend on books for now to learn. They are my teachers. This looks like it would be a valuable resource for me. I will buy it if I don’t win it. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

  4. Thank you for providing this give-away. I read and re-read dharma teachings. They are an invaluable learning tool for me.

  5. All the writers I love to read! I would very much enjoy this anthology & sharing its insights with others.

  6. Have been following this series for years. Love the Dharma that is shared. May all beings be happy, safe, and live with ease.

  7. What a wonderful collection this must be!! Looking forward to reading this since so many of my favorites are represented here!

  8. I would love this! I have one from 2008 and it is a great way to sample different authors. A smorgasboard of wisdom!!!

  9. i cant wait to see it!
    its full of people i admire and am inspired by,
    thank you for the chance to win a wonderful gift!

  10. This is a book which I would use and share with others. I leave it to the universe to bless the right person with this gift.

  11. Most of the writers attracting me today are practicing Buddhist precepts at some level. I love reading individual expressions of Buddha-nature!
