Book Review: Ten Tales from Tibet by Lama Lhakpa Yeshe


Title: Ten Tales from Tibet: Cultivating Compassion
Author: Lama Lhakpa Yeshe
Publication Date: 27th September 2017
RRP: $18.99AUD

Synopsis: "Ten Tales from Tibet is a timeless collection of traditional stories exploring the absolute essence of Buddhism - compassion.

Told with utmost simplicity, these beautiful tales will awaken and nourish your spirit, inspiring you to create positive change for yourself and others around you."

My thoughts: In the interests of keeping in line with this book's overall feel, let me keep things very simple.

This book is beautiful, well-produced, with simple, well-told stories interspersed with beautiful photographs. I found myself getting lost in both the stories and the images chosen to accompany them. I found that I had to pause after each story to really absorb its message.

Only one story didn't quite resonate with me, but I suspect that is because I didn't fully grasp its meaning. Other than that, all of these stories are beautiful, and I know I will be returning to this book in the future for cultivating compassion.

Rating:  8/10
