Praise for Buddha in the Classroom--I'm reading your book. I would like to say that it reflects what I go through daily as a family physician. I kept wanting to change the title to "Buddha in the Exam Room". Thank you for taking time to write the book. It gave me another direction to " find myself and understand myself." I posted these words on the wall: at this moment, I am happy! --I love your enthusiasm and down to earth style of teaching as well as your full understanding of the Asian way. --I never never had this kind of impulse to write any feedback to any author. Your book and lectures are too powerful on a soul level...I went through your youtube channel and bought your book last week. I really like it when you said we cover up our discontent by drinking, eating, gambling, or even traveling (I would add working), and letting go is the antidote. You made those super deep wisdoms even for Asians easy to practice and understand. --This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I also teach adults, so I appreciated her perspective as a community college instructor. The wisdom in this book has helped improve my practice and helped me through days when I thought I might lose my mind!
