Publisher Comments:

Dzongsar Khyentse describes in accessible language--sometimes even goading and poking fun at us--what it really means to follow the Buddha's teachings. Khyentse starts by explaining how Buddhists are not just smiling pacifists in robes. He goes from there, cutting through common misperceptions. But the real essence of the book is what a Buddhist is--namely, someone who follows the teachings of Buddha. Khyentse presents the core teachings using the framework of the Four Seals, a traditional and well-known teaching from the Tibetan Buddhist Nyingma lineage. The Four Seals are: everything is impermanent, emotions are pain, nothing has inherent existence, and nirvana is beyond concepts. These four points are the fundamental tenets of Buddhism, and Khyentse goes on to explain what they mean--with the premise that if you don't understand and believe in these four points, you are not a Buddhist. This book will appeal to readers who are interested in getting through all the trappings and finding out what it really means to be Buddhist. Dzongsar Khyentse has a uniquely appealing voice, tending to be edgy, funny, iconoclastic, and critical.

Dzongsar Khyentse describe en lenguaje accesible, incluso aguijoneándonos a veces y usando de burla liviana, lo que realmente significa seguir las enseñanzas del Buda. Khyentse empieza por explicar que los budistas no son simplemente unos pacifistas sonrientes que visten hábitos. A partir de ahí empieza a aclarar las percepciones erróneas más comunes. La verdadera esencia del libro, sin embargo, consiste en explicar qué es un budista, es decir, aquel que sigue las enseñanzas del Buda. Khyentse expone las enseñanzas esenciales usando el esquema de los Cuatro Sellos, una enseñanza muy conocida y tradicional del linaje budista tibetano Ñingma. Los Cuatro Sellos son: todo es transitorio, las emociones son dolor, nada tiene existencia inherente, y el nirvana está más allá de todo concepto. Estos cuatro puntos son dogmas fundamentales del budismo, y Khyenstse explica lo que significan, partiendo de la premisa de que si no los entiendes o no crees en ellos no eres budista. Este libro va a atraer a todos aquellos lectores que preferirían cortar con lo superfluo y entender qué significa realmente ser budista. Dzongsar Khyentse tiene una voz excepcionalmente atractiva, aguda, crítica e iconoclasta.

Synopsis:

¿Así que crees ser budista? Veamos, reflexiona. El maestro de budismo tibetano Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, uno de los Lamas más creativos e innovadores de hoy en día, arroja el guante al mundo budista, desafiando los conceptos erróneos, estereotipos y fantasías más comunes. Con ingenio e ironía Khyentse incita a los lectores a ir más allá de los adornos superficiales del budismo, más allá del romance con las cuentas del rosario, el incienso o los hábitos exóticos, y a entrar derecho en el corazón de lo que el Buda enseñó.

So you think you're a Buddhist? Think again. Tibetan Buddhist master Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, one of the most creative and innovative lamas teaching today, throws down the gauntlet to the Buddhist world, challenging common misconceptions, stereotypes, and fantasies. With wit and irony, Khyentse urges readers to move beyond the superficial trappings of Buddhism—beyond the romance with beads, incense, or exotic robes—straight to the heart of what the Buddha taught.
