This book offers a superb distillation of Buddhist belief, practice and art.  The book presents a fascinating kaleidoscope of all aspects of Buddhism, including Tantra, Zen and the Pure Land beliefs of Japan.  The emphasis throughout is on the wisdom, healing power and beauty of Buddhism and on its relevance to those who seek an alternative to secular materialism.

Buddhism has given immeasurable riches to the West—a collection of profound and life-enhancing ideas, a host of beautiful works of art (from statues of the Buddha to Zen gardens) and a repetoire of spiritual practices from mantras to mindfulness that can change all our lives for the better.

Tom Lowenstein has been a student of Buddhism for more than thirty years. He studied Pali and Sanskrit in Sri Lanka and at the University of Washington.  His other main area of academic interest is Alaskan Inuit history and ritual.  His previous books include The Vision of the Buddha, Ancient Land: Sacred Whale and several collections of poetry.
