Book Giveaway: The Heart is Noble

Book coverIn his new book, the Karmapa calls on us to open our mind and heart to the innumerable connections we share with others—in our families, communities, social systems, and on our planet. Thanks to the depth of his spiritual training, and the breadth of his curiosity about the world and his love for it, he presents a relevant framework for understanding what it means to be human now—and why it’s imperative that we concern ourselves with the well-being of all others. He points to a world we can create through our own effort, using a resource we already have in abundance—the basic nobility of our human heart.

  1. E Ma Ho Wonderful Karmapa has given us the Guru’s View on

    How to Make it Real Dharma in your Real Life with the Real People on the Real Planet We Depend Upon–
    We depend upon interdependence even for the air we breath we depend upon the Oxygen from plants.
    Interdependence is not independent existence from it’s own side
    Interdependence is appearance emptiness like a dream

  2. I would love the opportunity to read this book. My journey has been filled with love and light since I found my self absorbed in the teachings of Buddhism several years ago. Memories of a recent trip to Bhutan, and what I learnt while there from some divine teachers will always be with me as I walk my path.

  3. May all beings receive the blessings from reading, and incorporating these teachings to improve the lives of all sentient beings. Karmapa Chenno

  4. I would really like to read this book and understand it’s message. I don’t have the sense my heart is noble. I try, I keep on practicing but I am grumpy and sort of constricted although I have the intention to expand and connect…I don’t really know how to do it…I am sort of shrunk into my shell.
    Great this book is written and out there.
    Thanks to the Karmapa for writing it and thanks to Shambhala for publishing it and telling us about it.

  5. Six months ago I was in a horrible hiking accident. Six months later I am starting to remember myself, my life and my Buddhist ways. Its been a long journey, and still continues to be one. Reading has been my companion in finding my way back to myself, and this book would be one remarkable addition to that journey.

  6. ‘like a dream’ is not helpfull.
    Dreams in western parlance are like delusions.Fragile and shaky.
    ‘the dualistic mind thinks AGAINST itself.’I prefer that style of ideation.
    thanks for the opportunity.

  7. certainly the feline heart is innately noble-perhaps that’s not so immediately apparent with the human one! I’d love to read the book :)

  8. This looks like a great book. I have been struggling lately with my academic pursuits and how they can be of benefit to others. I’m coming to the conclusion that any intellectualization of ways to bring change misses the point. In order to change the world, we must first change ourselves.

  9. I would love to receive the gift of “The Heart is Noble” If I am not the recipient of this gift then someone else must need it more than do.

  10. I have just recently discovered the wealth of wisdom from teachings. your spirtuallity speaks to my heart and soul. your teachings and love for man kind fills a void in my heart. Any book that I recive will be treasured and well worn.
    Thank you
