The radical and compelling message of Buddhism tells us that each of us has the wisdom, awareness, love, and power of the Buddha within; yet most of us are too often like sleeping Buddhas. In this definitive and nonsectarian guide, the American-born and Tibetan-trained Lama Surya Das shows how we can awaken to who really are and thus walk the liberating, peaceful path of mindful and compassionate living. With lively language, meditations, and spiritual practices, the author provides a bridge between East and West, past, present, and future. Awakening the Buddha Within offers a complete yet accessible understanding of the unique teachings embodied in the traditional Noble Eight-Fold Path and its Three Enlightenment Trainings, common to all schools of Buddhism: Wisdom Training; Ethics Training; and Meditation Training.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is well written, interesting and enlightening...as a book on Buddhism should be. The easy writing style and relevant examples made this book real to me and I left it with a better understanding of Buddhism and how it relates to my world. "

    " This book tells you how to live like a Buddhist, without being a monk. There are behaviors in life we can all practice and you don't have to renounce Christianity to be a part of it. Treat others better, find meditation in everything you do, and be a better person. "
