The Buddhist Bootcamp



Welcome back to the Buddha's Face blog where we are reading Timber Hawkeye's very short and easy to read Buddhist Bootcamp. This simple book has a page for each heading opposite and with some inspiring quotes to help you guide and live your life better.

You could read it in probably not much more than hour and find yourself re-reading it again. The author was originally a Tibetan monk that found the rules and restrictions too stultifying and was encouraged to try the more simplistic Zen Buddhist approach which was simpler but even that was too restricted for what he was trying to achieve.

At it's heart the message of Buddhist Boot Camp is in two words "be kind" - the rest is just detail. !

  1. Like what the Dalai Lama has said. It is choice. The choice to be responsible with ourselves and the attitude towards others. It is something that we have to choose how we want to do it.

    This is an great article that tells you about the choices that we make, only we have that power to choose for ourselves.
