This is a very beautiful and practical book explaining how we can learn to be happy all the time. In three volumes, it explains the whole Buddhist path to enlightenment. Geshe Kelsang begins by explaining why we need to practise Buddha's teachings - although we want to be happy all the time, we don't know how to do this and we are continually destroying our happiness by developing negative states of mind ('delusions') such as anger, attachment and ignorance. He goes on to show how happiness comes from inner peace, and how a peaceful mind can only be achieved by controlling and finally eliminating our delusions by practising Buddha's teachings on developing wisdom and compassion.

It's very kind of Geshe Kelsang to allow this book to be made available free of charge considering the wealth of wisdom that is contained within it - read it, practise it, and watch your problems vanish.

I've had the paper copy for a while and now have the free eBook version, which is very beneficial for myself and others. I treasure Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's teachings and am amazed (but not surprised) that he is offering this book for free so that countless living beings may benefit from the pure Dharma within it. I have many of his books and find the teachings in Modern Buddhism to be consistent with his other books, but there are some subtle, beneficial differences in this book that are not in any of his other books. In his books, he seems to be relating to people of the current time. He seems to constantly hone and clarify the teachings so that they are easy for modern people to read, understand, and put into practice. Because the eBook is free, I have found it to be very easy to "give" to others who might not otherwise have access to the book. Many people I know have found this book extremely helpful in their daily lives. I highly recommend it and rejoice that it is free for everyone.

These three volumes are a gift to humanity. Geshe states they are to be distributed free. shame on Amazon for charging even minimally for volume one. they are ALL free from other e-book distributors.

These books are amazing. It's almost as if he's holding your hand and guiding you through the path of wisdom and compassion. It's written for the beginner ("The Path of a Person of Initial Scope") as well as the experienced ("Middling Scope" and "Great Scope"). Very practical.

I own both the ebook and the paperback versions of this book and I find that each time I read it I get a little something more out of it. The best thing is if you know nothing about Buddhism this book is helpful and if you've been studying Buddhism for 20yrs it's also helpful. Everything you need to know about Buddhism and how to put it into practice in your day to day life is in here. Read and enjoy.

I ordered this book to get a better handle on meditation and contemplation. A Christian I was reading, often used Buddhist writers as examples of those who relate to Christian thinking, (although "Christian thinking" varies from far left to far right).

What I found interesting is, though Christianity and Buddhism have very different perspectives, the methods used to meditate and/or contemplate are quite similar.

I have read many books on Buddhism and they always left me feeling confused or seeking more answers this book is clearly written in layman's terms. Very easy to understand and put into daily practice. I had purchased the paperback version first and now have the kindle download so that I was able to pass on my hardcopy to someone else who was looking for answers. Thank you.

This is not written very well. It's not engaging and kind a dry. It does not help that the author is wrapped up in a huge controversy within the Buddhist community and willingly puts himself at odds against the Dalai Lama. But his organization apparently owns golf courses so maybe this is a new form of Buddhism after all. (sarcasm).
