Stephen Fry is an excellent narrator. I prefer to listen to this rather than watch a show! Of course the stories are fantastic, but I mean... Sherlock Holmes, right? Fry really adds to the stories. Doesn't overdo it . #Audible1

foundational reading for a meditation practice. draws on multiple lineages and tradtions, mostly but not solely Buddhist. could certainly "take what you like and leave the rest", meaning, wisdom is wisdom---irregardless of what tradition it arise from. many possibilities to take the seeds Brach gifts us with and plant them in gardens of all spiritual traditions.

At first, the narrator is almost impossible to follow--the cadence is particularly difficult for my brain to process. Doesn't follow typical language patterns at times: pauses btwn...every three words... sounds... staccato :) Makes it tough to know when a sentence ends, BUT it gets better (or maybe I just got used to the narrator as time went on---either way). Lourde is, as always, perfection though. Forever grateful.
