“A warm and disarming new approach to embracing Zen in the real world.” ~~ Kirkus Reviews.  And–an Amazon #1 Bestseller!

The idea is simple–everyday items and situations as sources of Zen insight. From a junk drawer to a butterfly. From Ginger Rogers to Colonel Mustard. We’re surrounded by items and situations which teach Zen–if we just take the time to see.

Yet for some people, Zen is something they think requires rigorous study, years of solitary meditation, dressing in odd garb, and quoting Buddha. Nothing could be further from the truth. Everyday life is Zen. You are the Zen master, and it, is a perfect antidote to the noise and untruths of daily life.

In this book, everyday items and occurrences–like a “Hello!” from the greeter at Walmart–combine with impressionistic takes on classic Zen stories to “point at the moon”, to help you garner a bit more insight into your Zen.

From the co-author of the well-received Life Between the Tigers, which the Midwest Book Review said should be on every Buddhist’s bookshelf, and the forthcoming The Girl by the Side of the Road, Buddha is a Greeter at Walmart is the Zen book you’ve been looking for. /*
