From Publishers Weekly
Weighing in at four and a half pounds, Danielle and Oliver Fallmi's book Offerings: Buddhist Wisdom for Every Day is a bit heavy for a bedside devotional. However, it is visually stunning, with 365 color photographs of Tibetan Buddhists at work and worship amidst the natural beauty of Asia. There is a short quote for each day, many from traditional Buddhist texts and others from contemporary teachers such as Jack Kornfield, Pema Chidren and the 14th Dalai Lama. The quotes and photos are organized into 52 weekly themes, including impermanence, clarity of mind and change.

However, it arrived to me damage. The front cover 1/3 torn away. I'm very disappointed in that. But the contents of the book itself is full of wonderful teachings and quotes.
