Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This book of daily readings includes 365 pieces of portable Buddhist wisdom -- thought-provoking quotations and inspiring thoughts from the greatest teachers throughout history. Sayings by Dogen, Suzuki, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama, and Milarepa are all represented here.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This year has seen a stable of books and devotionals that aim to enhance daily life with Buddhist principles: 24/7 Dharma (Tuttle), Zen 24/7 (Harper San Francisco) and The Buddha's Book of Daily Meditations (Shambhala), just to name a few. Putnam/Tarcher joins the party with Jeff Schmidt's 365 Buddha: Daily Meditations. While there's nothing original about the book's concept, Schmidt is refreshingly honest about that: the opening epigraph actually assures readers that "nothing new will be said here." This is a nice book of short daily meditations, but it's virtually indistinguishable from its peers. ( Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
A longtime practitioner of Buddhism, Schmidt has assembled a winning anthology of insights, poems, parables, and stories from the Buddhist tradition, ranging from its earliest texts to 20th-century works. Not least of the book's virtues is that its compiler understands, as few writers on any subject do, that less is frequently more. Schmidt's fine little book comes with a helpful glossary of terms not fully explicated elsewhere in the text. Highly recommended. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
