This eBook Modern Buddhism – The Path of Compassion and Wisdom, in three volumes, is being distributed freely at the request of the author Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (the Kindle Store sets the minimum price at 99 cents and also in some countries additional taxes are added). The author says: “Through reading and practicing the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.” So that these benefits can pervade the whole world, Geshe Kelsang wishes to give this eBook freely to everyone.

We would like to request you to please respect this precious Dharma book, which functions to free living beings from suffering permanently. If you continually read and practice the advice in this book, eventually your problems caused by anger, attachment and ignorance will cease.

A Glossary, Bibliography and contact information is also provided. Through practising these prayers regularly we can develop and maintain compassion and wisdom in our daily life, and swiftly fulfil our human potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the prayers you need in one volume July 10 2011
By R. A. M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's so kind of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso to include the prayers that he's giving commentary to right in the back of the book. The Liberating Prayer, which was written by the author, is a beautiful prayer that any Buddhist can appreciate. Likewise with Prayers for Meditation, which provide meditators with traditional Buddhist prayers to prepare their minds for meditation. Kindly, the author has also included prayers to Tara, Avalokiteshvara, Vajrayogini, and Heruka in the back of Modern Buddhism, which makes the book as a whole a perfect companion for any modern Mahayana or Vajrayana practitioner. How kind to offer these for free; it puts the "modern" in Modern Buddhism when you can carry your prayers around on your phone! If Amazon charges, try emodernbuddhism.com.

This is the most clear, concise book on Buddhism I have found. I have read most of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's books and would recommend any one of them. This one is actually free for your kindle...go for it.

First, we must purify our mind to eliminate the negative karma we have accumulated in the past, because if we do not purify this karma it will obstruct the growth of Dharma realizations. Second, we need to give our mind the strength to support the growth of Dharma realizations by accumulating merit. Third, we need to activate and sustain the growth of Dharma realizations by receiving the blessings of the holy beings. &quote;
