The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Path of Compassion: Stories From the Buddha's Life - Thich Nhat Hanh - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Path of Compassion:

The stories of Siddhartha.

My favorite Thich Nhat Hanh quote from the book:

"You already are what you are searching for."

Questions I pondered while reading the book:

How young is too young?

Does spirituality need to be so austere?

My review of the Path of Compassion

Great read about the Buddha.

I have to eat more than once a day, I insist.

I admire people who can devote their lives to their spirituality.
