Reviews

"You can feel it in the very sentences - Levine's earnest drive to share what he's learned, to bring us along into the open heart of revolution. This is a terrific new take on the old teachings - and I believe him. I want to join." -- Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones

"A passionate and timely appeal to overcome self-centredness through love and compassion, combined with eminently practical meditations to help you do so." -- Stephen Batchelor, author of Confession of a Buddhist Atheist

"The Heart of the Revolution is refreshing, relevant and to the point. A great manual for developing love and compassion in these difficult times." -- Martine Batchelor, Author of Let Go and The Spirit of the Buddha

"It offers a fresh look at mercy, a term not frequently used in Buddhism; includes an extensive commentary on the Metta Sutta; gives the lowdown on personal and romantic love; and explores cosmology and the three personality types according to traditional Buddhist thought." -- Shambhala Sun
