How can I be the person I want to be when I’m stuck in a job I hate? How is it possible to stay present in an era of nearly constant distractions? Can I pick someone up at a bar or club and still call myself spiritual?
This nitty-gritty guide to life for the spiritual-but-notnecessarily-religious uses Buddhist teachings to answer those burning questions and a host of others related to going out, relationships, work, and social action. Based – on Lodro Rinzler’s popular advice columns, Walk Like a Buddha offers wisdom that can be applied to just the sort of dilemmas that tend to arise for anyone making even a modest attempt to walk like a Buddha–that is, to live with honesty, wisdom, and compassion in the face of whatever life surprises you with.
LODRO RINZLER teaches at the New York Shambhala Meditation Center and throughout North America. His advice column appears online in the Huffington Post and the Good Men Project. He is also the author of The Buddha Walks into a Bar… A Guide to Life for a New Generation. Lodro runs the Institute for Compassionate Leadership, based in New York City.
