<p><i>You are a person worthy of love. You don鈥檛 have to do anything to deserve all the love in the world.</i></p><p><i>Real Love </i>is a creative tool kit of mindfulness exercises and meditation techniques that help you to truly engage with your present experience and create deeper love relationships with yourself, your partner, friends and family, and with life itself.</p><p>Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in Lovingkindness meditation, encourages us to strip away layers of negative habits and obstacles, helping us to experience authentic love based on direct experience, rather than preconceptions. Across three sections, Sharon explains how to dispel cultural and emotional habits, and direct focused care and attention to recapture the essence of what it is to love and be loved.</p><p>With positive reflections and practices, Sharon teaches us how to shift the responsibilities of the love that we give and receive to rekindle the powerful healing force of true connection.

<i>For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn鈥檛 take much--just hearing of someone else鈥檚 accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully. <br /> </i><b>鈥攆rom <i>Radical Acceptance</i></b><br /><br /> 鈥淏elieving that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,鈥?says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork鈥攁ll the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach鈥檚 twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.<br /><br /> Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of<i> Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance</i> does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.

Acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters, this modern epic became an instant bestseller upon publication in 1974, transforming a generation and continuing to inspire millions. This 25th Anniversary Quill Edition features a new introduction by the author; important typographical changes; and a Reader's Guide that includes discussion topics, an interview with the author, and letters and documents detailing how this extraordinary book came to be. A narration of a summer motorcycle trip undertaken by a father and his son, the book becomes a personal and philosophical odyssey into fundamental questions of how to live. The narrator's relationship with his son leads to a powerful self-reckoning; the craft of motorcycle maintenance leads to an austerely beautiful process for reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Resonant with the confusions of existence, <em>Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance</em> is a touching and transcendent book of life.

<b>鈥淎 terrific introduction to the Buddha鈥檚 teachings.鈥?鈥擯aul Blairon, <i>California Literary Review</i></b><br /> 聽<br /> This indispensable volume is a lucid and faithful account of the Buddha鈥檚 teachings. 鈥淔or years,鈥?says the <i>Journal of the Buddhist Society</i>, 鈥渢he newcomer to Buddhism has lacked a simple and reliable introduction to the complexities of the subject.

<b>The classic guide for Zen students pursuing the true way.</b><br /> 聽<br /> 鈥淪omebody comes into the Zen center with a lighted cigarette, walks up to the Buddha-statue, blows smoke in its face and drops ashes on its lap. You are standing there. What can you do?鈥?This is a problem that Zen Master Seung Sahn was fond of posing to his American students who attended his Zen centers.<br /> 聽<br /><i>Dropping Ashes on the Buddha</i> is a delightful, irreverent, and often hilariously funny living record of the dialogue between Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn and his American students. Consisting of dialogues, stories, formal Zen interviews, Dharma speeches, and letters using the Zen Master鈥檚 actual words in spontaneous, living interaction, this book is a fresh presentation of the Zen teaching method of 鈥渋nstant dialogue鈥?between Master and student which, through the use of astonishment and paradox, leads to an understanding of ultimate reality.

<b>An updated edition of a beloved classic鈥攖he original book on happiness, with new material from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Dr. Howard Cutler. Don't miss the Dalai Lama's newest, <i>The Book of Joy, </i>named one of Oprah's Favorite Things.聽</b><br /><br />Nearly every time you see him, he's laughing, or at least smiling. And he makes everyone else around him feel like smiling. He's the Dalai Lama, the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, a Nobel Prize winner, and a hugely sought-after speaker and statesman. Why is he so popular? Even after spending only a few minutes in his presence you can't help feeling happier.<br /><br />If you ask him if he's happy, even though he's suffered the loss of his country, the Dalai Lama will give you an unconditional yes. What's more, he'll tell you that happiness is the purpose of life, and that the very motion of our life is toward happiness. How to get there has always been the question. He's tried to answer it before, but he's never had the help of a psychiatrist to get the message across in a context we can easily understand.聽<i>The Art of Happiness</i> is the book that started the genre of happiness books, and it remains the cornerstone of the field of positive psychology.<br /><br />Through conversations, stories, and meditations, the Dalai Lama shows us how to defeat day-to-day anxiety, insecurity, anger, and discouragement. Together with Dr. Howard Cutler, he explores many facets of everyday life, including relationships, loss, and the pursuit of wealth, to illustrate how to ride through life's obstacles on a deep and abiding source of inner peace. Based on 2,500 years of Buddhist meditations mixed with a healthy dose of common sense, <i>The Art of Happiness</i> is a book that crosses the boundaries of traditions to help readers with difficulties common to all human beings. After being in print for ten years, this book has touched countless lives and uplifted spirits around the world.
