This modest book contains everything you need to free yourselffrom samsaric existence. That is a pretty good deal. [...] In simple and unvarnished terms the author reveals the heart; the pith of Mahayana Buddhist practice.
With amazing precision and brevity, altruism is established as the universal principle; the seed and fruit of enlightened mind. Each verse is a four-line stanza. I began reading at the mailbox and after twenty paces I had to sit down beneath a tree and read the book from cover to cover. This book is so WONDERFUL that spending another hour to read it through is a constant temptation.
You don't need to be a Buddhist to recognize the love and wisdom of this document. This is buddhamind poetry. This is gold. This book is exactly "as advertised" in the title.
The Dalai Lama likes this book. You will too.
