What Makes You Not a Buddhist by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse

"What makes you not a Buddhist“ by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse is a really good book. I must say, that I enjoyed it very much. In a modern style he explains Buddhism and shows what in the end makes a person a Buddhist or not. Although using this modern style he is clearly focusing on important topics of Buddhism and Buddhist teachings. His modern examples just enrich the teachings and help us, in our modern world to understand them better. By doing so, he does not hesitate to point out controversial issues, as religious extremism or misleading political correctness. The book is fun to read, but even written in this modern style offers a lot to contemplate and think about. Can recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Buddhism, but also to everyone who calls himself a Buddhist.
