  • How To Be Happy by Lama Zopa Rinpoche Hardcover 2008 130 pages This book seems very basic and simple, but that I think is deceptive Practice in all situations is necessary, and life is a never ending project I have heard many of these concepts before, however my search and study continue.


  • I believe books like this are meant really only for people with a lose grip on their Self It has good intentions though sometimes may come off a little naive especially in today s world A little too basic, I feel.
