Simple and accessible wisdom from His Holiness the Dalai Lama on how we stay in the moment in the midst of the demands and stresses of everyday life.

Be Here includes discussions of the Buddhist concepts of attachment, emptiness, compassion, love, and resentment and how our sense of the past and the future affect our ability to be in the present.

Many Buddhist practices and meditations focus on "being in the present moment." But what does that really mean? What does it mean to be here now?

Attachment. Emptiness. Compassion. You will hear the Dalai Lama present these three words again and again in this book of wisdom designed to move us toward the goal of "being here." He speaks of attachment--to things, to people, to memory, to feelings of anger and resentment, to future goals. Being attached means we are not here now; we are living through wherever our attachment takes us.

Does emptiness mean we let go of everything? Even the present thoughts in our minds? How does understanding emptiness help us to be here now? The Dalai Lama is clear: if we are not educated about past history and if we have no sense of the future, then how can be possibly have a "present"?

When we are here, we can practice compassion in the present moment and focus on social justice now. When we are here, we are no longer attached to our past, no longer stressed about the future, no longer tethered to suffering. Being here means we find happiness, peace, and the fullness of life.

Be Here means be moderate
By: Agustinus Tri Nugroho

I like this book. Somehow, it helps me to understand the Values in life itself. This book is giving a new perspective in how to ne aware. First, like what Buddha Gautama had done before, he found the core of life: balance! It's like you are setting the strings instruments. To get the harmoniously tone, we shouldn't set it too tight. It will break the string. But, you shouldn't set it too loose instead of tight. The sound will be ao bad. Just set in moderate, and the strings will vibrate and produce very comfortable sounds ever.
