The best-selling author of Awakening the Buddha Within addresses life's most provocative and tantalizing questions simply, directly, and powerfully.Every life is a journey through the unknown. Along the way, however, we tend to encounter the same perplexing questions again and again. Some are cosmic enigmas that have always tested the human mind: What is my purpose in life? What happens after I die? Others are puzzles presented by daily life in modern society: What, if anything, justifies assisted suicide? What is my personal responsibility to the homeless? According to Lama Surya Das, one of ...

He ends with a fine discussion of how we need to ask ourselves the one Big Question, the one that matters most to us, and that the answer, given time and reflection, will come.Why four stars?

This is one of many titles that he's written, and he writes in a manner where you can "hear" his voice on the page easily.Therefore, for readers who might be put off by more Buddhist books, this serves as a stimulus to get one pondering.

When we confront questions about the meaning of our existence in this world, when we keep asking and explore spiritual, personal and universal issues, when we engage into deep enquiry about life and death, then we learn to live more deeply and meaningfully.Lama Surya Das examines 14 'big questions' (ranging from "What is happiness and where can it be found" (Ch 1) to "How can I integrate spirituality into my daily life" (Ch 9) to "How can I balance taking care of myself with helping others" (Ch 14) and responds to these through drawing from his own life experience and from a Buddhist perspective.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this buddhism book based on manufacturer ratings and comparison with its similar products. Let's go over the reasons why buying this buddhism book now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Rodale Books () has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. Sadly, this is your only option

3. This buddhism book has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This buddhism book has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this buddhism book more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. Take a look at its price history

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $48.99 $7.99

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed recently, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this buddhism book was $48.99, and the lowest price point was $7.99. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a healthy amount of price movement around this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 12.47% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $24.42 a week from now. It might be best to wait for a future price drop, but if this product checks all the boxes for you, don't wait to optimize for small gain.

5. Make sure Rodale Books is a brand you can trust

Rodale Books doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other buddhism book brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

That's it! I hope you learned enough about this product to make a purchase decision now. You can always ask me about anything via the bird button on the bottom right corner. Thanks for reading — I'm going to add more analyses on this review, so stay tuned!
