Make serious stuffs easy and fun and understandable. For Buddha's fan, all of Dr. Thurman's works will give you an inside how does Buddhism should function in western culture. A very special person whose intellect is surpassing many scholar in the field. Many first hand experience in Tibetan and Sanskrit and etc.... tradition. This is not only for Buddhist, but all who interested in corporate the technique in their daily life with concerning themselves with belief.
Here Thurman talks through the Vimalakirti Sutra, which he also translated and can be easily acquired on amazon. Great talks here. Very nice supplement / compliment to reading the translation. Just get these talks and listen. The sound quality is also very good.
Good overall, but this could have been GREAT had he spent more time speaking extemporaneously as opposed to reading the text.
