Review of “If the Buddha Dated”

If the Buddha DatedIf the Buddha Dated: Handbook for Finding Love on a Spiritual Path by Charlotte Sophia Kasl.

This book was recommended by several people, as they said the philosophies were similar to what I espouse in this blog. They were right! Of course, I enjoyed reading it as Ms. Kasl and I have a similar view of the world. She’s come to her perspective from various doctrines.

The section headings are:

  • Preparation for Love
  • Awaken Your Desire
  • Enter the Sacred Fire
  • Keep Loyal to Your Journey
  • Going Deeper
  • Living in the Heart of the Beloved

Her topics range from the practical (“Using Ads, Dating Services and Singles Clubs,” “Children and Dating”) to the philosophical (“Notice the Flow of Giving and Receiving,” “Be a Spiritual Warrior,” “Finding Love Beneath Illusions”). All in all, I found it a good read. If you lean toward New Thought, Buddhism, mindfulness or the metaphysical, you’ll enjoy this book. If you don’t, then don’t waste your money.
