ENLIGHTENMENT TO GO
An insightful exploration of the traditional Buddhist teachings on compassion, showing how we can apply them in our busy contemporary lives. From the bestselling author of Buddhism For Busy People.
The Dalai Lama always recommends a classic text by the Buddhist sage Shantideva as essential reading for those seeking a practical approach to Buddhism. With its life-changing psychological tools and transcendent wisdom, it is one of the world's great spiritual treasures. In Enlightenment to Go, David Michie provides a lively and accessible introduction to 'the best of' Shantideva. He shows how modern psychology confirms the insights of Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, and he unpacks its powerful antidotes to contemporary problems including stress, anxiety and depression. He also offers a structured meditation program to help readers integrate transformational insights at deeper levels of consciousness where genuine change becomes possible. Recounting stories from his own journey, David Michie illustrates the relevance of Shantideva's breakthrough teachings to a typically busy Westerner, with warmth and humour. Whether you are a newcomer to Buddhism or a seasoned practitioner, Enlightenment to Go offers a glimpse of a radiantly different reality - and a beautiful illumination of why the Dalai Lama recommends Shantideva's Guide above all others.
