Lions Roar : November 2017
UNSUBSCRIBE Opt Out of Delusion, Tune In to Truth By Josh Korda Wisdom Publications, 2017, 273 pp., $17.95 (paper) Josh Korda—an addiction survivor and an ex-ad man turned guiding teacher at Dharma Punx NYC—has had many lives. Along the way he’s learned a thing or two about how a person can truly transform their life. In this book, Korda shares his step-by-step guide to recover- ing from addiction to consumerism and self-deception. “I have come to realize that without authentic priorities, secure relationships, and honest vulnerability, significant spiritual transformation cannot occur,” writes Korda. The book includes chapters on everything from handling anger, addiction, and plain old bad luck, to communicating with a spouse. Through- out, Korda counsels readers to follow the Buddha’s central mes- sage, which isn’t just about the end goal of enlightenment. It’s being willing to take the first step that makes transformation possible. So be ready to “opt out,” he says. REVIEWS ENLIGHTENED VAGABOND The Life and Teachings of Patrul Rinpoche By Matthieu Ricard Shambhala Publications, 2017, 320 pp., $24.95 (trade paper) Patrul Rinpoche (1808-1887) was a wandering teacher who became one of the most illustrious masters in the Nyingma school of Vajrayana Buddhism. In this new book, Mat- thieu Ricard does his part to keep Patrul’s life story and teachings alive. The French Buddhist monk goes right to the source, basing his insights on written sources and the oral observations of other nineteenth-century teachers. Sprinkled throughout are nuggets of spiritual advice from Patrul’s own writings. These, Ricard writes, display his “unique teaching style, combining uncompro- mising toughness with ironic humor, profound simplicity with deep understanding rooted in personal practice, and extraor- dinary compassion for all beings.” The text is enlivened with plenty of ancillary material—maps, photographs, and lineage charts—as well as short sketches of Patrul’s masters and disciples and some of the earlier Buddhist figures who influenced him.
