Kay says that NKT-IKBU practitioners practice their tradition exclusively, "eschewing eclecticism. Kelsang Gyatso's "conservative and traditional presentation of Buddhism" is appealing to Westerners who "wish for a meaningful alternative to spiritual pluralism.

Eight Steps to Happiness: The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness. While I do like some of the Buddhist teachings on equanimity and loving kindness, I feel that Christianity is still more "accepting" in terms of achieving happiness - in Buddhism, the "only" way to achieve true happiness is to become a Buddha yourself, which makes me question why the author even titled the book that way in the first place.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso reveals practical ways in which we can use this timeless wisdom to find meaning and lasting happiness in our busy modern lives.

Excellent explanation of the basics. includes beautiful prayers in the Kadampa tradition. I recommend listening to those if you can find a digital copy, they're very easy to learn. Well-thought out.

One of the best books I've read...helps you to understand and analyze , body , mind , self ( I ) and outward phenomena in a analytical way ....so a person can achieve self realization and a greater understanding of ultimate truth....emptiness of all phenomenon and lack of are inherent exstance

There is a beautiful section on "the kindness of others" which truly touched my heart. It is so logical, thinking about all the things you constantly receive from others... but it is laid out in such great detail, and provides a really clear instruction on how to meditate and contemplate the kindness of others, to bring about happiness in your heart. If I just take that one chapter away from this book, and put it into practice, my life would be so much better. And the rest of the book is really interesting too, I like how there are many different meditations in the book, that you can contemplate in your own time. It's a really nice book.

This is a wonderful commentary on Geshe Langri Tangpa's (1054-1123) "Eight Verses of Training the Mind." With our current human life, we can either keep striving as usual (which leads only to occasional temporary happiness), or keep working diligently but change our intention and learn to cherish all living beings leading to permanent happiness. "All the happiness in the world arises from those wishing others to be happy." -Shantideva (8th century Buddhist master

I recently started to meditate and this book is just so amazing. If you haven’t read it then it is a definitely a must!

While I don't believe in much of the Buddhist religion (like the afterlife and the belief of being surrounded by many 'Buddhas,'), this book still changed my life. The teachings in it are great for anyone, even an atheist.

This book is guaranteed to change your life. As always Geshe Kelsang Gyatso presents Dharma in a very clear, understandable way that even novice practitioners can understand.
This is a well written book with the blue print to make ourselves happy. It is a kick to our wishes to make only ourself happy, we can do this but not in the way we think. Thought provking ideas that when tried seem to help my life and make me happier. We in this world think that external things make us happy, but we seem to really deeply know that it isn't working. I like the poem that has the stages of how to create our own happiness. If everyone read and thought about this book there would be world peace.
