BUDDHISM FOR BUSY PEOPLE Finding Happiness in an Uncertain World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicholas Bell

Philosophy & Religion • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

A novelist and former Type A executive offers a touching memoir about how Tibetan Buddhism transformed his life. Anesthetized by the mind’s internal chatter and the temporary pleasures of modern life, many people overlook the freedom they have to choose their internal reactions to life’s insults and tragedies. They’re trapped by their habits and appetites, oppressed by the impulse to control everything. With his nuanced phrasing and perfectly natural diction, British actor Nicholas Bell adds enormous appeal to this elegant personal lesson. His understated vocal presence, combined with the author’s humility and practical grasp of his subject, gives the production irresistible charm and accessibility. This beautifully rendered, beguiling introduction to meditation and Buddhist thought will help listeners consider realms of being they don’t ordinarily visit. T.W.
