Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This day-by-day collection of Buddhist wisdom invites readers to explore brief, pithy statements, many of which are drawn from the Dhammapada. Crosweller advises readers to "give [themselves] time to absorb" the short meditations contained here, since at first glance they seem deceptively simple: an aphorism here, a platitude there. The tiny, square paperback format may also lull the unsuspecting into imagining that this is a trite, undemanding introduction to Buddhism. But readers who are willing to dig a little deeper will find that this carefully selected collection has much to offer. In addition to the daily meditations, the book has an unusual appendix of sacred observances and holidays in the Buddhist year, and tools for further exploration in the form of books and organizations.
