The Web site Tiny Buddha began as a quote-a-day Twitter account, @tinybuddha, in
2008. Lori Deschene's daily wisdom posts about mindfulness,
nonattachment, and happiness became so popular that she now has more
than 200,000 Twitter followers who share quotes and stories about
inspiration in their daily lives.
Deschene asked her Twitter
followers to contribute their thoughts and perspectives on the difficult
questions that influence how we live our everyday lives: thoughts about
the meaning of life, pain, happiness, fate, and more.
Tiny Buddha, Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions
is a combination of the amazing responses that she received along with
her own insightful essays, and insights from wise teachers around the
world and throughout time. Deschene explores how these issues have
played out in her own life and offers action-oriented suggestions to
help people empower themselves, even in a world with so much
uncertainty. The result is a guide that helps listeners discover the
endless possibilities for a life lived mindfully in the present and
connected to others.
