18 Apr What 'No' Makes You a Buddhist?
Original title 'What Makes You Not a Buddhist' which in Portuguese the publisher preferred 'What makes you a Buddhist?'
Perhaps you were not born in a Buddhist country or in a Buddhist family, you may not wear religious dress or shave your head, you may eat meat and your idols are Eminem and Paris Hilton. That doesn't mean you can't be a Buddhist.
So, do you think you are a Buddhist? Think better. In this groundbreaking book, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, a master of Tibetan Buddhism, challenges the Buddhist world, questioning commonly encountered stereotypes, fantasies and misconceptions. With unusual strength and originality, it expresses the essence of Buddhism.
A provocative master, filmmaker, artist and acclaimed writer, Khyentse is one of the most creative Tibetan lamas teaching Buddhism today. In this book, he invites us to examine our most basic assumptions and beliefs, and inspires us to explore the true Buddhist path.
