Born Jeffrey Miller to a Jewish family on Long Island, Lama Surya Das has become an integral part of Buddhism's surge in popularity in recent years, as well as one of the foremost Western Buddhist meditation teachers and scholars. How does he describe himself? "I'm just a 3-letter jock from New York--if I can do this, anyone can." This endearing man strips away those intimidating trappings surrounding so many of the spiritual traditions and offers you sound practical advice on how to create your own personalized spiritual path--because "there is only one path - that path is your path." (hosted by Michael Toms)

  • Awakening to the Sacred: Creating a Spiritual Life from Scratch (Broadway 1999)
  • Letting Go of the Person You Used To Be: Lessons on Changes, Loss, and Spiritual Transformation (Broadway 2003)
