I took off the dust cover, and the book has a nicer image on it. The co tents are inspiring, and I use it as the speech next to my statue in my shrine. I have it standing up on end so the visual is not lost.

Like a precious stone. This book is small while its value is great. I suspect they made it that size to keep it very affordable and portable. After the first time I thumbed through it I already had a list of friends that I knew would love to have it. The translations of the verses from the Dhammapada are stunning. The wisdom deep and simple. One need not be Buddhist to feel the depth and draw from the wisdom.
But the real luster and light that make up the "facets" of this particular precious stone are the photographs of the Buddhas and Buddhists. The lengths that Ortner must have gone to, the rareness of the images (many of the Buddhas in this book are in places where very few outsiders are allowed to go and in places very difficult to get to) are a tribute--an offering if you will--to his own devotion toward achieving and sharing the incredible beauty he seems so greatly drawn to.
It is our good fortune that this book, filled with radiance and simplicity, is so affordable. Like the gift of prayer flags, both giver and receiver will feel blessed.

I'm not a Buddhist and I don't believe in reincarnation but I love this book anyway! It's packed with astonishing beauty and more than a few nuggets of wisdom. Virtually every page displays a breathtaking color photograph of stunning art or spectacular architecture. Highly recommended.

I received this book as a gift and immediately ordered 10 to give out as holiday gifts. The book is a brilliant gem in all ways.
I flipped through the pages and felt an instant feeling of excitement and calmness at the same time. The placement of quotes and photos is inspiring. I was especially moved by a photo titled Bayon, Angkor Thom, Siem Reap, Cambodia, which shows a stone Buddha draped elegantly in an orange cloth next to a holy person holding a simple incense stick. I was moved by the simplicity and honesty of this photo and all the photos in the book.
The cover and binding are beautiful. I've had the book on my desk for a day and everyone who came into my office picked it up and admired it. I couldn't get any work done because each person looked through the book. It wasn't the normal reaction that people have to a beautiful book. There is something much deeper going on with this book.
In these troubled times, this is the perfect book to have because it seems to dispense some kind of peace to everyone who touches it.
