Details: Product Description The now classic work on Buddhism and business from the foremost American teacher of Tibetan Buddhism—reissued in a tenth anniversary edition with compelling case studies that showcase its principles in action around the globe. With a unique combination of ancient and contemporary wisdom from Tibetan Buddhism, The Diamond Cutter presents readers with empowering strategies for success in their personal and professional lives. The book is presented in three layers. The first is a translation of The Diamond Sutra, an ancient text of conversations between the Buddha and his close disciple, Subhuti. The second contains quotes from some of the best commentaries in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. And the third layer, the main text, is the practical application of Buddhist philosophies to the world of business, based upon Geshe Michael Roach's seventeen-years of experience as an employee of the Andin International Diamond Corporation, a company that grew during his tenure from four employees to a world leader in the jewelry industry. Roach’s easy style and spiritual understanding make The Diamond Cutter an invaluable source of timeless wisdom for those familiar or unfamiliar with Tibetan Buddhism. His focus on practical personal and business applications has resonated with and changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals the world over since its original publication. Review “Here is wise advice and counsel on an ethical and prosperous way of being in the workday world based on Tibetan Buddhist principles.” — Spirituality and Health magazine About the Author GESHE MICHAEL ROACH has been a teacher of Buddhism since 1981 and also worked as a director of a large diamond company.

Chapter 1 Where the Wisdom Comes From In the ancient language of India, this teaching is called the Arya Vajra Chedaka Nama Prajnya Paramita Mahayana Sutra. In the language of Tibet, it is called the Pakpa Sherab Kyi Paroltu Chinpa Dorje Chupa Shejawa Tekpa Chenpoy Do. In the English language, it is called The Diamond Cutter, a High Ancient Book from the Way of Compassion, a Book which Teaches Perfect Wisdom. = What makes this business book different from any other you have ever read? It’s the source of what we have to say here: an ancient book of Buddhist wisdom called The Diamond Cutter. And the lines above are how the book starts out. Hidden in The Diamond Cutter is the ancient wisdom that we used to help make Andin International a company with sales of over $100 million per year. It’s good to know a little about this important book at the beginning, to recognize the role it has played throughout the history of the Eastern half of our world. The Diamond Cutter is the oldest dated book in the world that was printed, rather than being written out by hand. The British Museum holds a copy that is dated a.d. 868, or about 600 years before the Gutenberg Bible was produced. The Diamond Cutter is a written record of a teaching given by the Buddha over 2,500 years ago. In the beginning, it was passed down by word of mouth, and then–as writing first developed–it was inscribed onto long palm leaves. These were durable fronds of palm on which the words of the book were first scratched, using a needle. Then charcoal dust was rubbed into the scratches left by the needle. Books that were made this way are still to be found in southern Asia, and remain quite legible. The loose palm leaves would be kept together in one of two ways. Sometimes a hole would be bored with an awl through the middle of the stack of leaves, and a string passed through to keep the pages together. Other books were kept wrapped in cloths. The original Diamond Cutter was taught by the Buddha in Sanskrit, the ancient language of India, which we guess is about four thousand ye
