Summary: "So, WHAT MAKES YOU A BUDDHIST? You may not have been born in a Buddhist country or to a Buddhist family, you may not wear robes or shave your head, you may eat meat and idolize Eminem and Paris Hilton. That doesn't mean you can't be a Buddhist." -from the Introduction
Detail: "So, WHAT MAKES YOU A BUDDHIST? You may not have been born in a Buddhist country or to a Buddhist family, you may not wear robes or shave your head, you may eat meat and idolize Eminem and Paris Hilton. That doesn't mean you can't be a Buddhist." -from the Introduction In this fresh and provocative book, Tibetan Buddhist master Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse throws down the gauntlet to the Buddhist world, chal­lenging common misconceptions, stereotypes, and fantasies. With unusual force and originality, he expresses the essence of Buddhism. Khyentse en­courages us to examine our most fundamental assumptions and beliefs, and he inspires us to explore the authentic Buddhist path. "There is much food for thought in this short book for Buddhist students and for anyone interested in the ongoing adaptation of traditional Eastern wisdom into postmodern Western settings." -Publishers Weekly DZONGSAR JAMYANG KHYENTSE was born in Bhutan in 1961. He is a student of Khenpo Appey Rinpoche. He is the head of the renowned Dzongsar Monastery and Dzongsar College and is responsible for the care and education of approximately 1,600 monks living in six monasteries and institutes in Asia. He oversees Siddhartha's Intent, an organization of six teaching and practice centers around the world, as well as two nonprofit organizations, Khyentse Foundation and Lotus Outreach. He wrote and directed the films The Cup and Travellers and Magicians.
