Tiny Buddha began as a quote-a-day Twitter account, @tinybuddha, in 2008. Lori Deschene's daily wisdom posts about mindfulness, non- attachment, and happiness became so popular that she now has more than 300,000 social media followers who share quotes and stories about letting go of pain and opening up to joy.

Deschene asked her Twitter followers to contribute their thoughts and perspectives on the difficult questions that influence how we live our everyday lives: thoughts about purpose, pain, happiness, fate, and more.

Tiny Buddha, Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions is a combination of the amazing responses that she received from readers and lessons from wise teachers around the world and throughout time.

Deschene explores how these issues have played out in her own life—funny, heartfelt stories of her adventures as an aspiring actress in New York, her trek across the country as the official dog walker of the Iams' spokesdog for Steps Across America, her brush with personal development seminars, and her search for love and meaningful work.

Tiny Buddha offers action-oriented suggestions to help people empower themselves, even in a world with so much uncertainty. The result is a combination of bite-sized wisdom and stories that help readers discover the endless possibilities of a life lived mindfully in the present, connected to others.
