I was recently gifted with a book that has proved to be both inspiring and beautiful. It is a small book, where I read a page or two before bed, but the stunning photos and the pithy sayings from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition stay with me into the next day. Perhaps you would enjoy it as well. It's entitled Offerings: Moments of Mindfulness from the Masters of Tibetan Buddhism (Mini) and features photos from Tibet, northern India, and Nepal. It shows the grittiness and beauty of everyday life there. And the quotes come from the Dalai Lama, Pema Chodron, Chogyam Trungpa, Jack Kornfield, Milarepa, and many others. Gift yourself with this book.
