BUDDHA IS AS BUDDHA DOES The Ten Original Practices for Enlightened Living

by | Read by Lama Surya Das

Spirituality • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

There's something surprisingly comforting about a man who sounds so ordinary and American teaching listeners how to follow in Buddha's footsteps. With a down-to-earth voice, American-born Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das outlines Buddha's ten-fold path to living as a bodhisattva (enlightened awakener). The soothing hum of Buddhist chanting introduces each disc, and Das's relaxed voice guides listeners through each of Buddha's 10 paramitas (transcendental virtues). Das draws from other religious and spiritual practices, as well as classical philosophy, to make Buddha's teachings accessible to Westerners. Sadly, Das narrates like a lecturer rather than a storyteller. By the book's end, his delivery style leaves the listener feeling well educated but not inspired.
