In 2006 His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who calls Lama Surya Das the American Lama, said to an American audience, "It is not enough just to meditate and pray, which are always good things to do, but we also must take positive action in this world."
In the process of awakening, the Buddha realized that all of us, deep within, are inherently perfect and whole, with the capacity to overcome suffering and transform ourselves into forces for good. In this book national bestselling author Lama Surya Das, one of the foremost American Buddhist teachers, offers a thorough, tried-and-true map to the richest treasure a human being can find—Buddha's advice for living to your true potential. By following these guidelines, you will enter into a life of greater joy, clarity, peace, and wisdom than you ever thought possible.

Appropriate for new seekers as well as experienced practitioners, and accompanied by lively anecdotes and practical exercises, this is one of the most accessible books to date on the ancient and timeless wisdom of the Buddha. Buddha Is as Buddha Does is for everyone who seeks to become a better person and share in the bounty of true Buddha nature.

Lama Surya Das is one of the foremost American Buddhist teachers and scholars and is known affectionately to His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the "American Lama." Surya Das is the author of the bestselling books Awakening the Buddha Within and Buddha Is as Buddha Does, founder and spiritual director of the Dzogchen Center, and founder of the Western Buddhist Teachers Network. A sought-after speaker who teaches, lectures, and conducts retreats around the world, he lives in Concord, Massachusetts.From AudioFile:
Theres something surprisingly comforting about a man who sounds so ordinary and American teaching listeners how to follow in Buddhas footsteps. With a down-to-earth voice, American-born Buddhist teacher Lama Surya Das outlines Buddhas ten-fold path to living as a bodhisattva (enlightened awakener). The soothing hum of Buddhist chanting introduces each disc, and Dass relaxed voice guides listeners through each of Buddhas 10 paramitas (transcendental virtues). Das draws from other religious and spiritual practices, as well as classical philosophy, to make Buddhas teachings accessible to Westerners. Sadly, Das narrates like a lecturer rather than a storyteller. By the books end, his delivery style leaves the listener feeling well educated but not inspired.
