Slovenia: President's Book Review

AlesS of A Little Blog For a Restless Mind reviews a book written by Janez Drnovsek, Slovenia's president: Thoughts on Life and Awareness. “To me the president with this book seems like a freshman that hasn't even yet passed the first grade of buddhism, yet already wants to teach (preach to) everyone what is right and what is wrong. As a side point, I've heard he even wants to convince the Dalai Lama to become a vegetarian, because that's the purest form of being, or something.”

    Veronica, how much do you know about Slovenia? How much do you know about the Slovenian president or the people? How much of Buddhism have you practiced in your life? Do you think Buddhism is the only way to spirituality and awarness? Are you or have you ever been a vegetarian? Do you know anyhing about animal industry and inviromental issues? If you had an amazing realization about yourself or the world that would make a huge difference, would you share it with the rest of the world?
    Are you someone who makes a difference or do you complane about other people or their actions? What kind of world will you create for your children?

  • dear tina,

    please note the quotation marks around the opinion about the president and his book, and please address all your questions to AlesS of A Little Blog For a Restless Mind.

    thank you,
    veronica
