This is a beautiful little book that would make a great gift. This book communicates the deeply spiritual tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and shows you how to bring some of its wisdom into your own life. It describes the history of Tibetan Buddhism, the key themes such as the use of mandalas, mantras, yoga, and trantras to enhance your inner development. It also shows how women have a special place in this tradition. This book gives simple exercises drawn from Tibetan Buddhist practice to guide you on a compassionate path to enlightenment. I found this book very informative and inspiring.
