Of all the Buddha's teachings, perhaps his greatest gift can be found in the Bodhisattva ideal, a template for living in the world as an Awakener, a servant of the highest good for all. With his previous best-sellers, including Awakening the Buddha Within, American-born Tibetan Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das has made the helpful, healing insights of the Buddha accessible to millions. Now, with Buddha Is As Buddha Does, he helps listeners to discover:

  • How to become a Bodhisattva, a peacemaking spiritual warrior, an embodiment of wise compassion in action
  • How to actively practice the ten paramitas in daily life: generosity, ethics, patience, energetic effort, meditation, wisdom, skillful means, higher aspiration, powers, and pristine awareness
  • The Seven Jewels of the Bodhisattva: Faith and Devotion, Self-Discipline, Discriminating Wisdom, Charity, Learning, Honesty, and Modesty
  • Inspirational lessons from history's legendary Bodhisattvas, including Tara, Avalokitesvara, and Manjushri - plus contemporary examples of enlightened action based on the realization of the oneness of all life. Download and start listening now!

      " The book soothes the soul -- as good as 10 mojitos! If you're looking to change your consciousness in a way that is easy to apply to Western culture (well, let's just say it: American culture), this is a great primer. "

      " Slogged through some of the book. Not a lot of memorable "ka-pow" moments. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 7/28/2008

      " This is another great read, although I am not certain I have completed. One of those books you pick up, and each time you open, you are at the lesson for the day. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 5/27/2008

      " I'm thinking that this should be an ongoing read...Very inspirational and enlightening but a little overwhelming all at once. I'm going to try an focus on 1 paramita at a time. "
