Finished this easy read on a flight from California to Texas. A great book on the similarities between Budda and Christ. On being present and mindful. Bottom line, be open to all ideas. I really liked this!

A helpful distillation of some of the key insights in its source, the incredible Living Buddha, Living Christ. A great way to refresh one's memory of the longer work or to whet one's appetite in anticipation of it....
