  1. Buddhism is just the way of life, not any religion.,
    as I understand.
    we do need Buddhist uplifting thoughts for
    reflection and better understanding.
    it’s a great service to Humanity.

    Peace.to all.

  2. I read too much Dharma. I know this. Sometimes I need to put the books down and just practice. But the books do lead me there so maybe it’s wholesome? At least partly? :)

  3. Having spent all of yesterday at the Jade Temple here in Houston in the wonderful company of friends, this would be the perfect addition. Or, in book terms, edition!

  4. Like the rings in a tree, these volumes add to our awareness,existance and strengthen us when allowed to grow in reading from them. Many Thanks for this generous offer and Congratulations to the fortunate one who receives this volume.

  5. Sorry, but his Holiness the Dalai Lama is the only real Buddhist on the displayed authors list for the book. If you want to serve the Buddhist community you need to maintain purity in your publishing. a “Best Buddhist Writing” book should be by Buddhist writers and not Pop Culture writers.

  6. The Shambhala Sun and Buddhadarma are staples at my house. I enjoy everything that you put into print. This book sounds like a wonderful addition to your fine works.

  7. I am new to using Buddhist methods to help control panic and depression issues. I have been able to reduce my panic attacks by practicing staying in the moment and breathing. I find that reading Buddhist materials and applying them to my life has also been helpful for my depression. This book would be a blessing for me. Thank you for the chance to receive this gift.

  8. All the light on my path is gratefully appreciAted.
    Love Shamabala Press, I’ve read a lot of books you’ve generated, always thought provoking and inspirational.

  9. This book look’s amazing. Having recently discovered my passion for buddhism I’m excited to see an excellent book like this is available. I look forward to reading it.

  10. I love to read Buddhist writing and look forward to reading this! I hope to do some Buddhist writing myself in the future…

  11. Having already purchased several books published by Shambala, I have found this to be a good source of material on the spiritual aspects of Budo.

  12. Great to see the positive recommendations of this book series above~ and perfect to share with my teen, as we explore the dharma! Thank you for the opportunity and inspiration for a young poet and artist. Will we be able to find this title through inter-library loan? (in case I am discovering the book Giveaway too late for this time around : ) Namaste

  13. The book sounds wonderful, and obviously, many would like to see it and benefit from it. Can it be shared online for all to see, perhaps PDF format?

  14. I am now craving this book. Presumably I will also cling to it if I obtain a copy… and so continues this cyclical round of suffering.

  15. From Norman Fisher to HH the Dalai Lama, what a collection. Learned and inspiring folks. I’d greatly appreciate a copy. thank you.
