From 2005 to 2007, teacher Dzigar Kongtrül Rinpoche gave classes on Buddhist scholar Shantideva’s The Way of the Boddhisattva at a noted retreat center in Northern California. His commentaries revealed such a deep understanding that practitioner Marcia Binder Schmidt decided to collect them for other students of Buddhism as an independent work. This book is the result. Beginning with an overview of the entire path of Buddhism, Kongtrül Rinpoche goes on to examine different aspects of Shantideva’s text, always relating the teachings to individual experience. He explores in depth the training of the four immeasurables—equanimity, loving kindness, compassion, and sympathetic joy—and discusses the importance of wholehearted engagement in the process. His advice for setting up and maintaining a spiritual practice is both practical and inspiring. Although the book contains three years of teachings, it remains remarkably compact, reflecting Kongtrül Rinpoche’s characteristic directness and emphasis on implementation. In the words of the editor, “Dharma practice needs to be more than mere theory. Dharma needs to be trained in, integrated into our lives, and embraced by wisdom.” Uncommon Happiness contains the guidance to undergo that training with the right attitude of clarity and commitment.

Uncommon Senses: Opportunity and Consequential Thinking Theorems These two theorems are life changing, life enhancing philosophies and make success possible in troubled times! Simply put, are you recognizing opportunities while minimizing negative consequences? You have to make the "right" decisions every time just to survive in our current world; it's crazy out there. If not then you are doomed to failure, misery, and suffering. By applying these theorems to your everyday situations and decisions you make, you will maximize opportunities and minimize negative consequences and quickly adapt to ever changing times. Surely you recognize these are critical times requiring rapid but perfect decisions, learning how to make great choices, avoiding bad decisions, recognizing the difference between the two, and knowing how to take advantage of "every" situation. One's ethics, integrity, honesty, and righteousness are being challenged everyday in our hedonistic narcissistic society, where do you stand and what can you do to avoid life's pitfalls? So how do we do we make these philosophies work to our advantage? The basic premise of these two theories are simple but with time and practice can become quite complex once you delve into and apply them to your everyday decisions. The questions you must ask yourself frequently in every situation are, what are my opportunities right now, what are my best possible choices right now and later on, what are all possible consequences regarding this decision, how do I avoid pitfalls, and how do I enhance any opportunities? These concepts are presented to learn how to maximize the positive things you're faced with and minimize any negative outcomes automatically. The successful application of these two theories into working life models and practical application will lead to a highly successful life. Have you created a life plan (what is a life plan?) that will help focus your life, creating meaningful goals, and help set precise benchmarks as measurements leading to one's success? This is more than a self improvement type book it is a philosophy, a psychology, and a life-skill once it becomes ingrained in your daily routine. Who or what is your guiding light, foundation, and important in these tumultuous times? If you cannot answer all these questions right now then you need this book. Read it carefully, use the theorems, and make some life changing decisions. Once you adopt/use these theories you will see tremendous positive results in everything you do. Best wishes in using these life-enhancing applications!

Uncommon Friendships explores the often-overlooked dynamic of interreligious friendships, considering their significance for how we think about contemporary religious thought. By exploring the dynamics of three relationships between important religious thinkers--Franz Rosenzweig and Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, Emmanuel Levinas and Maurice Blanchot, and Julia Kristeva and Catherine Clement--this study demonstrates the ways such friendships enable innovation and transformation within religious traditions. For each pair of thinkers, the sustained engagement and disagreement between them becomes central to their religious and philosophical development, helping them to respond effectively and creatively to issues and problems facing their communities and societies. Through a rereading of their work, Young shows how such friendships can help us rethink religion, aesthetics, education, and politics--as well as friendship itself.
