A Trip Through Death, Sex, Divorce & Spiritual Celebrity In Search Of The True Dharma
by Brad Warner
Why meditate when the world is crumbling around us? Is meditation just another form of escapism? During a year that Zen master Brad Warner spent giving talks and leading retreats across North America, his mother and grandmother died, he lost his dream job, and his marriage fell apart. In writing about how he applied the Buddha’s teachings to his own real-life suffering, Warner reveals that Buddhism isn’t some esoteric pie-in-the-sky ultimate solution but an exceptionally practical way to deal with whatever life dishes out. 240 pp.
