«Dal mattino presto alla sera tardi, dall’asilo alla pensione, passiamo la vita di corsa per risparmiare tempo. Ma cosa succederebbe se il tempo non avesse il controllo su di noi? Se sentissimo, anzi, che il nostro tempo e la nostra vita ci appartengono?»
Il ritmo e le pressioni del mondo d’oggi sembrano non darci tregua; proprio per questo, oggi più che mai, abbiamo bisogno della saggezza che deriva da una delle grandi intuizioni del buddhismo e che L’arte di vivere il tempo presente rende accessibile a chiunque: i minuti e le ore della giornata non scorrono semplicemente dal futuro al presente al passato; ogni istante, infatti, è intersecato da una quarta dimensione temporale. Imparando a vivere in questa dimensione – «il fuso orario del Buddha» – riusciremo a ridurre il livello di stress nelle nostre giornate e troveremo maggiore concentrazione, appagamento, creatività e perfino saggezza nella nostra vita.
Attingendo all’insegnamento del buddhismo tibetano, ad altre tradizioni sapienziali e olistiche, e alle ricerche più recenti nell’ambito delle neuroscienze, Lama Surya Das propone esempi significativi tratti dalla vita di tutti i giorni, esercizi pratici e tecniche di base per cambiare il nostro modo di pensare e per comprendere, finalmente, di avere di fatto tutto il tempo del mondo.

I read this book in Buddha Standard Time that's for sure - it has taken a while, but it has felt like dipping into a quiet meditation session with each chapter. This is really beautifully written. I simply get to the end of these sorts of books, and I despair - because I can't understand why we don' Leggi tutto

Lama Surya Das understands where you’re coming from and can provide you with the tools you need to live in the now, slow down your crazy fast-paced lif Leggi tutto
I found this a little disappointing really. There are some nice meditative practices explained, and some interesting scientific theory about the benefits of meditation. Other than that, I didn't feel it offered anything very astounding and was a little too lacking in the Buddha aspect of "Buddha Sta Leggi tutto
Having previously read and enjoyed Lama Surya Das’ ‘Awakening the Buddha Within’ and ‘Awakening the Buddhist Heart’, I was up for one of his other books. It is billed as being for both newcomers to Buddhism and for ‘old hands.’ I must say, however, that while the former category of readers will prob Leggi tutto
From the same author as Awakening the Buddha Within, the first book I ever read on Buddhism. Lama Surya Das presents the Dzoghen view of attaining an enlightened state. All you have to do is attend to the here and now. (LOL as if that's simple!) This is a must-read for anyone interested in a Mindfuln Leggi tutto
My first official audiobook! This had a lot of good tips and tricks for being more mindful and present, and the narrator's voice was very soothing. I find it very awesome that I finished an entire book while at work, it makes me feel very accomplished!
Stop and smell the roses. Repeat. Choose your relationship with the universe from the menu of any religion or philosophy, leaving out the parts that dwell on the past of stress you about the future. Now stop and smell the roses some more. Snark aside, I actually thought this was a decent book for bits Leggi tutto
I enjoyed the cross cultural and religious references in this book which really helped make it accesible to people who do not necessarily believe in Buddhism. I did however think that the author wasn't always qualified to use draw certain scientific conclusions from evidence that he had gathered, pr Leggi tutto

Always Good to Spend Time with LSD Lama Surya Das (LSD) is a teacher for whom I feel great affinity, and whose teachings and writings are spot on. This book is no exception. Down to earth and deep at the same time, I recommend it highly!
