"In his trademark emphatic and no-nonsense style, Lama Marut provides a much needed critique of modernity that cuts to the root of every problem we currently face on the planet."
– Dr. Miles Neale, Buddhist Psychotherapist and Assistant Director of the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science
"Here's some help in kicking your ego's butt, so that you can create a genuine spiritual life. Instead of endless self-improvement, you're invited to let go of your self. This really is the only way to be happy. Akin to Woodie Guthrie's acoustic folk guitar, Be Nobody should be inscribed, 'This book destroys egos.' Lama Marut is brilliant, a Chogyam Trungpa for new generations, mixed with a little Louis C.K. style humor."
– Lisa Selow, life coach and author of A Rebel Chick Mystic's Guide
"In a conversational tone, Marut offers a nondenominational, effective, and accessible challenge to “being somebody” and a method for engaging with the “nobody” found in the everyday and every one."
– Publishers Weekly
"Lama Marut's Be Nobody fiercely examines our preoccupation with the 'I', revealing how living on the 'Me Plan' can never satisfy the hungry ego. The antidote he offers is truly liberating, not only for oneself but for all sentient beings."
– Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning
"Writing with great sensitivity to stress we all feel, Lama Marut helps us see that we strive to be valued by trying endlessly to be more and more special...Laying out a clear spiritual alternative, he dares us to become Nobody: a state of complete authenticity, where we are present to our lives and joyfully connected to all."
– Lindsay Crouse, Academy Award Nominated Actress
