With his goofy grin bow ties and pop ishly titled books I sometimes wonder if Lodro Rinzler is deliberately trying to make me roll my eyes and grunt Am I supposed to take this goofball seriously? Uuuuuuurg Then I pick up the book read a few pages and sigh in resignation yep he might make the old grumpy punk in me seethe but it is undeniable that this guy isn't talking out of his ass He knows his stuff and he also knows how to articulate it in an approachable and occasionally silly way but dammit I would have loved to have found books like this when I was fifteen years younger and just getting interested in BuddhismWalk Like a Buddha is a collection of answers Rinzler had written for his blog What Would Sid Do? I know I know I'm cringing as I type this where people asked him for a modern Buddhist perspective on daily overwhelmingly Western and Generation Y problemsIt is a good companion book to his first book The Buddha Walks Into a Bar as it goes into specific examples and practical adviceThis is a great little book for beginners and people who are simply curious about what it means to bring Buddhist insight into daily life The Notes section is also full of really great reading recommendations Oh man oh man oh yay Listen I have tried to read books by the Dalai Lama et al but I just couldn't get through them Not because I didn't appreciate the message I appreciated AND agreed with most of it But I think the problem is applying ideas to every day life and Walk Like a Buddha totally bridges the gaps between philosophy spirituality and modernity At the same time Rinzler refuses to be instructional repeating constantly that he does not have all the answers and the key to Buddhism is figuring things out for yourself He offers helpful hints for how to think about common negative situations I can see myself referring back to this again and again The main thing for me was again the tone Totally nonjudgmental and gentle Would recommend this to anyone feeling a bit off kilter to get them back on track Really that's the beauty of it just reading it even if you don't meditate or don't even really care to address any problems in your life right now is reassuring so A This is a good book for 20 and 30 something's who feel like there's gotta be to life For entry level part time or non Buddhists alike Lodro explains different situations and scenarios in life love and work in a what would Buddha do format All in all we're all inherently good and peace is only a meditation away Loved itI loved this book I read it with a book club that I joined and we had a great discussion about the ideas within this book I thoroughly enjoyed the overall message that everyone is basically good and kindness is all you need I would highly recommend this to everyone This book was just ok for me It was certainly insightful at times but after a while I felt like it was just repeating thoughts and kind of going through the motions Useful but not outstanding It was OK is about all I can give it I felt like the book kind of tried to be an advice column book and kind of tried to be integrated philosophy and did meh at both Rather than having a coherent whole picture treatment of how to deal with difficulties then getting into details the author went right to details I didn't realize that this was the author's second book and perhaps I should have read that first to get what I was looking for However I just felt like the book's format didn't really allow the author to go into a lot of detail A lot of the advice broke down to practicing compassion being open and mindful etc but especially in uestions that dealt with dealing with difficult people I could constantly hear the but what about when I do that and they do THIS? that would be the next logical step The author shied away several times from the topic of CONSEUENCES of dealing with difficult people Yes it's great to practice compassion and be open and mindful but when you do that and still have someone in your facebackstabbing younot pulling their weight etc it doesn't really feel like a solutionI suppose that for a philosophy book the philosophy felt a bit piecemeal and for an advice column book the book discussed the same solutions over and over Whichmight be the Buddhist point here but the issue of not just what the right action is but also how to deal with others' reactions to your right actions was almost wholly left untouched And meditate and be mindful and you'll Just Know the right thing to do crept in there every now and then which didn't really work for meThat said some sections of dealing with work were very insightful especially dealing with email I just wish that all things had gotten that concrete a treatment In short I really loved this book I went into the book being very skeptical I have read a LOT of hip self help advice and Buddhism books lately so I was worried that this was going to adopt annoying slang like the others I'm looking at you Kris Carr and Danielle LaPorte but it didn't It stayed very traditional Buddhist This is basically a wonderful primer for someone who is just getting into their meditation practice but it's also wonderful for someone who has been doing this for years and just has very difficult uestions to ask such as what would the Buddha do if his first told him he was cheating on his girlfriend?Not so easy figuring these things out when you're a Buddhist How much can I drink? Can I drink at all? What if I want to punch people at work? What if I just hate everyone at work? What about abortion?Everything is answered here and it's amazingly readable and not preachy at all The ONLY thing I didn't like was towards the end when he started to go on and on about Obama and how wonderful he is because he worked on his re election campaign I thought this bit was very unnecessary and should have just been left out completely I like this guyI was first introduced to this author Lodro Rinzler by his book “The Buddha Walks into a Bar” and I really enjoyed his lightheartedness and since of humor I didn’t spend anytime really looking into his background but through his writing I assumed he was a northeasterner by birth who had an old soul and I connected with him When suggested his book “Walk Like a Buddha” I didn’t hesitate for a moment I purchased a used copy as I often do and once again this guy just talks to me so when I discovered he was in his thirties I was shockedI’m still asking myself how a kid his age can have such a deep and practical understanding of these Buddhist principles Sure there were parts of the book that were a bit repetitious but I still felt he did a great job translating and communicating these time tested Buddhist teachings to a western audience or culture He has a knack of keeping things simple and practical and I just love him for that Who knows one of these days I might have the pleasure of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with this guy Some of my friends practice Buddhism and I wanted to get a peek into what it was all about I have to say I was very impressed with what I read in this bookThe book basically answers uestions asked by people regarding their dilemmas in day to day life and how Buddha if he were alive today would deal with them What Would Buddha Do?The book really makes a lot of sense and offers a philosophy to live your life to the fullest and be happyThe shambhala meditation techniue which has been highlighted in this book opens your mind You become mindful of what is happening right NOW It asks you to accept all that you are feeling be it good or bad as a reality I have started doing meditation I hope for something magical to happen in due course of time I have loved Lodro's view of the buddhists way of life since his first book Buddha walks into a bar this one answers some tricky uestions that might come along the journey and has been uite helpful as a map for that journey
