    The teachings of the Buddha and of various Chinese, Japanese and Indian Bodhisattvas are offered in this wonderful book. Each teaching is to be savored, Kornfield instructs us, so that the words may sink in and that we may connect with the teaching. I am new to Buddhism and was curious to read what he actually said. This is a wonderful book in that regard, and it gives one a great deal to reflect on. I recommend it. (If you're new to Buddhism, like me, there are several wonderful YouTube videos of talks by Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dali Lama, Pema Chodron, Jack Kornfield, Susan Piver, and many other, that will be helpful in giving you a good grounding in Buddhism. There are also magazine publications such as Lion's Roar and Buddhadharma - all of which are wonderful resources for learning about Buddhism.) All of my exploration prior to purchasing this book is helping me to get even more out of each teaching, but the book also stands on its own. You don't have to be Buddhist to get a lot out of it, either.

    I LOVE the Shambhala Pocket Classics series. I have probably a dozen of their titles and have replaced this one several times after losing it or giving it to a friend. The book is diverse and has nuggets of wisdom from the many branches of Buddhism and all of them are fairly short. The vignette style of the teachings makes this a great book to carry and read on a break and then just spend a few minutes contemplating the passage.

    I was disappointed this book was so tiny, but I'm sure that's my fault for not reading the small print. The content is great, but it's about 3 inches long. And to top it off, my dog ate it yesterday.

    A perfect little reference - I bought this to keep in my vehicle glove compartment. A bit of wisdom and energy wherever I go!

    A great collection from a range of traditions. Something in there for everyone. It is nice to have a small book to take along and yet have access to so much wisdom.

    This is a somewhat dense religious text, but this translation makes it accessible. For anyone that wants to learn about Buddhism from its source, this is a good place to start.

    I haven't read this book yet. However I listen to the audio version often. Great presentation of Buddhist doctrine and practical knowledge.

    I love Jack Kornfield. Bought this for Kindle and read it daily on my iPhone instead of my Kindle. Excellent compilation.
