To 'Become Buddha' is to AWAKE to our personal responsibility - not only for our own lives but for the world around us. The book will provide a path - if you follow this path it will transform your life. Buddhist masters say that we are in a 'Dark Age'. Terrorist attacks, wars, economic failures and natural disasters have created an atmosphere of fear. Tibetan masters encourage us not to lose heart - catastrophes have happened before and we have overcome them. Robert Sachs shows how Tibetan Buddhist teachings can have a real influence on our personal lives and equally on contemporary politics. He presents traditional Buddhist teachings in a practical, readable style and shows the reader how they can help to cultivate the inner resources necessary to meet challenge and conflict - both in themselves and in the world. He presents the four thoughts that revolutionize the mind and demonstrates how we must take personal responsibility for the future. The Four Noble Truths show us there is no need to despair - and the four components of action will change our attitude to life providing practical instruction on how to act - using the power of meditation to make a difference - and turn the inherent goodness of the human race into positive energy to help transform the world

An accomplished history of the Buddha, An End to Suffering is also a deeply personal story -- the story of Pankaj Mishra's search for meaning, for truth and peace in the modern world and, specifically, in post-colonial, independent India. As he describes his travels to unearth the origins of the Buddha, Mishra offers glimpses into his own quest for enlightenment, from childhood to September 11, from family background to friends met and made, from lessons learned to achievements as a writer. Through this, Mishra reveals the parallels between his time and the Buddha's, between their respective journeys -- and that of their country -- in search of progress and reconciliation.

The works of the Buddha can feel vast, and it is sometimes difficult for even longtime students to know where to look, especially since the Buddha never explicitly defined the framework behind his teachings. Designed to provide just such a framework, In the Buddha's Words is an anthology of the Buddha's works that has been specifically compiled by a celebrated scholar and translator. For easy reference, the book is arrayed in ten thematic sections ranging from "The Human Condition" to "Mastering the Mind" to "The Planes of Realization." Each section comes with introductions, notes, and essays to help beginners and experts alike draw greater meaning from the Buddha's words. The book also features a general introduction by the author that fully lays out how and why he has arranged the Buddha's teachings in this volume. This thoughtful compilation is a valuable resource for both teachers and those who want to read the Buddha on their own.
