'In The Everyday Dharma, Willa Miller, an authorized lama in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition, reworks ancient Buddhist techniques and adapts them for western readers seeking personal transformation. Becoming a Buddha, Lama Miller explains, means observing the mind and actions and then doing the physical, psychological, and spiritual work to move closer to oneís wisdom nature. Dharma is spiritual practice; itís what one does every day to make oneís mind and world a better place to live. Each chapter includes a passage to read, an exercise of the day that relates to each weekís topic, a quote from a sage, and tips on how to make daily practice a little easier. The book shows that itís not necessary to subscribe to a particular ó or any ó belief system to benefit from this program. "Itís only necessary," says Lama Miller, "to believe one deserves to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life."
