What does it take to be happy? We've all asked ourselves this question at some point, but few of us have found the path to lasting fulfillment. David Michie thought he had achieved his life's goals the high-level job, the expensive city apartment, the luxury car, the great vacations but a small voice was telling him he wasn't really happy. A chance remark from a naturopath sent him to his local Buddhist center. There he began the most important journey of his life. In this simple but beautifully written book, David Michie opens the door to the core teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. With wry, self-deprecating humor, he shows us now he began to incorporate Buddhist practices into his daily life. He explains how he came to understand the difference between the temporary pleasures of ordinary life and the profound sense of well-being and heartfelt serenity that comes from connecting with our inner nature. Every once in a while you come across an extraordinary book with the power to change your life. Buddhism for Busy People is one such book.
"Shows us, with refreshing clarity, how we can make big changes taking small steps." --Sophie Cunningham, author, "Geograph"y
I got hold of a UK copy of this book after hearing the author speak on Radio NZ. I knew nothing about Buddhism, but wanted to learn. I found it a great book very easy to read and thought provoking. Is is written as a biography of the author, who tells of his experiences of learning about Buddhism, I had a job putting it down, I wanted to know what he learnt next! I'm no expert on the subject so I found this book written for me, an ordinary person in the street.
