Richard Gere narrates in an easy, gentle voice that is perfectly suited to this examination of the fundamental principles of Buddhism and its practice. Gere blends serious and joyful tones throughout the audiobook. There is a playful lilt in the way the names of spiritual leaders roll off his tongue. And there are clarity and fluidity in his explanations of the importance of understanding and accepting the paradoxes of life and their resolution--such as realizing the problem is within us and finding peace from the things we want by letting them go. Gere also conveys the audiobook's encouraging message about the practices that reveal the root of our suffering and help achieve a more authentic life and a deeper sense of peace. An earnest and compelling performance. M.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
