As a person living in today's western world with a full time job, family, etc, Lama Surya's newest book Buddha Standard Time is a necessary, healing, and soothing medicine which comes at a crucial time. I too, like so many others nowadays, complain that I don't have enough time or energy to devote to my spiritual practice. Lama Surya's heart advice illuminates this fallacy for what it is- laziness, and a lack of focus or priority. He holds aloft the blazing torch of Buddhahood in the here and now, and reminds us that the Buddha is ever present and shining through every moment. This is a most rare and precious transmission. We would be doing ourselves and the world a great benefit by deeply listening and following his advice, learning to live in Buddha Standard Time. How amazing, how sweet it is. Thank you Lama Surya for upholding the light so that we too may see the light within ourselves and others.
