author of A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life ($16.00 Beyond Words)
A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life is an honest, fearless, and often humorous manifesto standing as a practical and achievable (if not radical and revolutionary) blueprint for creating and sustaining happiness in an age of consumerism, self-absorption, and stress. The book will connect with a broad range of readers of all ages, races, religious and non-religious, and Buddhist or non-Buddhist backgrounds.
Lama Marut’s provocative yet compassionate guide argues against the capitalist idea that happiness is a consumer product, sold to us by the best advertising agencies. Through a series of meditations, exercises, and insights, Lama Marut offers a fresh take on our quest for happiness and the good life, here and now.
A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life ends each chapter with an action plan designed to incite true, unpackaged happiness. This book is bound to disrupt your suffering, disturb your dissatisfaction, and elicit a deep-seated contentment. Happiness is in our hands; we only need to shake off our inertia and incite it!
