Ruling Your World: Ancient Strategies for Modern LIfeby Mipham, Sakyong
Are you one of the many people who feels that their life is out of control? Then this book may help bring peace and purpose back into your life. In a very simple format the author, Sakyong Mipham, explains ancient secrets for taking control of one's life. The trick is to stop thinking about yourself all the time. Although it sounds much too easy, the author shows that if you can gain control of your mind, you will gain control over yourself and then you can rule your world. Mipham shows how the "self-centered" lifestyles of today can be exchanged for compassion and "doing for others" and that these small steps will make the world a better place to live.
This book is short and easy to read yet informative and enlightening. The author is the one of the foremost Buddhist teachers in the world. He is fluent in English (he was raised in America) and he runs marathons to raise money for Tibet. Turning the Mind into an Ally was his first book.
