Publisher Comments:

With a unique combination of ancient and contemporary wisdom from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, The Diamond Cutter presents readers with empowering strategies for success in their work and personal lives.

Geshe Michael Roach, one of the great teachers today of Tibetan Buddhism, has richly woven The Diamond Cutter in three layers. The first is a translation of selections from the Diamond Sutra itself, an ancient text comprised of conversations between the Buddha and his close disciple Subhuti. Considered a central work by Buddhists throughout the world, the Diamond Sutra has been the focus of much interpretation over the centuries. In the second layer, Geshe Michael quotes from some of the best commentaries of the Tibetan tradition. In the main text, the third layer, he uses both sutra and commentary as a jumping-off point for presenting his own teaching.

Geshe Michael gives fresh insight into ancient wisdom by using examples from his own experience as one of the founders of the Andin International Diamond Corporation, which was started with capital of fifty thousand dollars and which today has annual sales in excess of one hundred million dollars. Much of the success of Andin has come from applying the business strategies presented in The Diamond Cutter. Geshe Michael's easy style and spiritual understanding make this work of timeless wisdom an invaluable source for those already familiar with, and those unfamiliar with, Tibetan Buddhism.

From the Hardcover edition.

Roachs easy style and spiritual understanding make THE DIAMOND CUTTER an invaluable source of timeless wisdom for those familiar or unfamiliar with Tibetan Buddhism.

Ruth M. Bird, January 28, 2015 (view all comments by Ruth M. Bird)
This book changed the way I see life, and how I interact with people, especially in the work place.
Every time a friend or family member calls to relate an impossible situation at their job, I send them a copy of The Diamond Cutter.
It has nothing to do with religion, it is another, more realistic, less personal way to look at people and situations. It opens up other ways to consider life and people.
Imagine your job with less or no stress. Imagine life with no lines drawn in the sand. That is the gift of this amazing, articulate, humorus book, an insight into a better place to live.
