Product description

Review

"This book, "Being Buddha at Work", attempts to relate the Buddha's advice to the modern workplace. I trust that readers will find inspiration here and pray that those who do will meet with success in putting that inspiration into effect."
--from the Foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama

""Being Buddha at Work" made me think; it made me chuckle; it made me reflect. This little book is like having Buddha as one of your mentors or coaches--someone who can help you with real-world problems."
--Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager(R) and Leading at a Higher Level

"Most of us could benefit from having a little more of Buddha in us during our daily lives. This is a great guide to transcending the tensions of the workplace and facing issues with humor and equanimity."
--Walter Isaacson, President, Aspen Institute, author of the biographies Steve Jobs, Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin.

"What do you get when a Buddhist scholar and a workplace expert write a book together? Being Buddha at Work--a treatise with profound spiritual implications and practical applications. Being mindful was never as important as it is in today's high-stress business climate."
--Marshall Goldsmith, author of MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"As a Tibetan Lama, I am happy that workers everywhere can benefit from Buddha's teachings in their jobs and careers by reading this inspiring book. These same teachings have guided my Nyingmapa lineage for centuries, so it is richly rewarding to see them expanded into this new realm."
--Tulku Tsori Rinpoche, Founder of Yogi Tsori Dechen Rinpoche Foundation

"In a world where people are stressed, overworked, and constantly distracted by screens, this book is a gentle wake-up call. Written in a clear and loving language, it will bring a smile of recognition to your lips and help you wipe the dust off your mind's mirror."
--Dr. Cristina Rocha, Managing Editor, Journal of Global Buddhism
