    "Do I have something better to do?" the author asked herself as she began her journey into Tibetan Buddhism. The still jewish author, now a lama (teacher), gives an introduction to meditation with a step-to-step instruction on how to practice, and explains fundamental concepts of Tibetan Buddhism in a unique way.

    The title of the book is deceptive. I picked the book thinking that it is about Dalai Lama only to realize that there is only a paragraph or two about him. I didnt read the book in full but just in bits and pieces that too only because it is a well packaged book with an interesting book mark, thick paper, cards and pictures. I have read many spiritual books but this one failed to impress me. I quite liked the the narration of the story of Gautam Buddha. Otherwise this book is all over the place, [...]

    How can the Dalai Lama always be smiling and full of love and forgiveness given what has happened during his lifetime to the Tibetan people? In Lama Tsomo's encyclopedic introduction to Tibetan Buddhism, she answers this question in depth, having followed the same ancient traditions to find a new way of living for herself. I now understand why and how the Dalai Lama, and the monks and people who were lucky enough to flee Tibet when the Chinese took over, did not suffer PTSD despite the horrors e [...]

    Why is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? A Westerner's Introduction and Guide to Tibetan Buddhist Practice applies the ancient traditions of Tibetan Buddhism to modern life through a series of step-by-step instructions and explanations and comes with portable meditation cards, a handy glossary of terms, and foundation lessons from the Namchak Foundation eCourses.One doesn't expect to find science 'tidbits' peppered into a spiritual treatise, but they are wonderfully present here. Rupert Sheldrake's [...]

    Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' FavoriteWhy Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling is an enlightening and beautiful book that includes a memoir of sorts by author Lama Tsomo, thoughts on spiritual paths, and instruction on how to be happier and live a peaceful lifestyle. The book begins with the author’s own journey, her struggles, and how she became involved in Buddhist practices. That would be enough to tell a moving tale of life and choices, but she goes further and includes instruction [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lama Tsomo’s Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? Prior to reading, I had quite a few preconceptions about what Tibetan Buddhism was about—which is to say, I had no idea that more than anything it’s a grounded set of practices for living a better life.While the book contains some very specific advice for getting started using the meditation techniques of Tibetan Buddhism, it first chronicles the author’s journey and overall experience with Tibetan Buddhism. [...]

    I agreed to read Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?: A Westerner's Introduction and Guide to Tibetan Buddhist Practice by Lama Tsomo and give a fair and impartial review in exchange for a free book because Buddhism is a spiritual practice that I haven't spent much time exploring. I was intrigued. Lama Tsomo writes in an accessible and enjoyable voice. She blends humor with the serious while describing her journey to Buddhism. Alas, Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? didn't convert me to Bu [...]

    If you're reading this to find out Why the Dalai Lama is Smiling, you're not going to find out why. This book is basically a touch on some Buddhist practices and meditation. The author says this is a book one of three. The other two may touch on the smiling part. This book is worth the read and I'm eagerly awaiting the other two books.

    Great book. Well written. This is the first book in a three-book series. Who is Lama Tsomo? Her education/training in Tibetan Buddhist practice and the Tibetan language are listed in this book. I wanted a beginners book on Tibetan Buddhism. Appendix A, B, and C are helpful also. Lama Tsomo even included a bookmark and 6 practice cards.
