President Obama is known to be an avid reader, so just for fun, if I could recommend a few books, I’d suggest:
- Nagarjuna’s Precious Garland (after all it was written for a king)
- Sakya Pandita’s Treasury of Good Advice
- Shantideva’s A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life (and if that’s too long), the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation
Please pray for Mr Obama and his family, pray that he will guide the country in an ethical, responsible and compassionate manner. Clearly, no single person can turn our country around — it’s up to all of us as individuals to choose the path of virtue and harmony regardless of our political or religious preferences.
