To 'Become Buddha' is to AWAKE to our personal responsibility - not only for our own lives but for the world around us. The book will provide a path - if you follow this path it will transform your life.
Buddhist masters say that we are in a 'Dark Age'. Terrorist attacks, wars, economic failures and natural disasters have created an atmosphere of fear. Tibetan masters encourage us not to lose heart - catastrophes have happened before and we have overcome them.
Robert Sachs shows how Tibetan Buddhist teachings can have a real influence on our personal lives and equally on contemporary politics. He presents traditional Buddhist teachings in a practical, readable style and shows the reader how they can help to cultivate the inner resources necessary to meet challenge and conflict - both in themselves and in the world. He presents the four thoughts that revolutionize the mind and demonstrates how we must take personal responsibility for the future. The Four Noble Truths show us there is no need to despair - and the four components of action will change our attitude to life providing practical instruction on how to act - using the power of meditation to make a difference - and turn the inherent goodness of the human race into positive energy to help transform the world
