An original author adaptation of Lama Surya Das’ book on the core teachings of the Buddha.
Full Description

Of all the Buddha's teachings, perhaps his greatest gift can be found in the bodhisattva ideal, a template for living in the world as an "awakener," a peacemaking spiritual warrior serving the highest good.

With his previous bestsellers including Awakening the Buddha Within, American-born Tibetan-Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das has made the helpful, healing insights of the Buddha accessible to millions. Now, with Buddha Is As Buddha Does: The Ten Original Practices for Enlightened Living, he offers a four-CD session based on his book of the same title to invite you to be and become a bodhisattva. Join him to explore:

  • How to cultivate bodhicitta, the "spirit-engine" of enlightenment that allows us to embody and actively practice the Buddha's teachings in the real world
  • How to actively practice the ten paramitas (transcendental virtues) in daily life—generosity, ethics, patience, energetic effort, meditation, wisdom, skillful means, higher aspiration, powers, and pristine awareness
  • Inspirational lessons from Lama Surya Das's personal teachers, including The Dalai Lama—plus contemporary examples of enlightened action based on the realization of the oneness of life.

"As long as there is suffering in the world, there is spiritual work to do," explains Lama Surya Das. "We are the bodhisattvas, the future Buddhas of this world." Join this lucid guide to experience the sacred wisdom of he Buddha's greatest lessons, with Buddha Is As Buddha Does.

I love this man's wonderful expressive clarity. This is the most informative, concise and encouraging work I have encountered about the everyday step by step work it takes along the way in seeking to live the life of a Bodhisattva.

Review for Buddha Is As Buddha Does

Delightful is all I can say. Fun to sit in my zero gravity chair, put on a CD, look into the tree out the window and listen. Basic, but we really need to come back to the basics from time to time, especially if we're doing other serious work. Refreshing.

Review for Buddha Is As Buddha Does

I was not impressed. What little I could tolerate seemed preachy and, if one wanted to feel good about being a buddhist because of the Paramitas then this might resonate.

I like to learn. Many folk on the planet practice these same principles, though they may not call themselves buddhist. I learned nothing new, except like many groups, and don't know why I thought buddhism would be exempt, it seemed a way to feel superior or better than, due to the principles that are a part of buddhism.
