Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The third annual "best of" anthology of Buddhist writing demonstrates the wide applications of Buddhist insights among today's English-speaking practitioners. From parenting and dying to forgiving a murderer, Buddhism has something to say about awareness and impermanence. The usual thinkers Pema Ch dr n, Thich Nhat Hanh and the Dalai Lama are included with 30 other writers. Selections from various teachers constitute the backbone of the anthology, and they are clear and useful for practitioners. But a number of writers are not teachers, which enhances the variety of perspectives and subjects. All anthologies have their hits and misses. "Dr. King's Refrigerator" by Charles Johnson quickly and imaginatively engages. "After the Flood" by Erik Hansen injects Buddhist compassion into the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. On the other hand, "Coming to Our Senses" by respected mind-body researcher and meditation teacher Jon Kabatt-Zinn is a disappointingly stale alarm sounded about a crisis on the planet. Carolyn Gimian's "The Three Lords of Materialism" lacks precision ("There is that kind of co-emergent quality to life altogether"). This series continues as a great window on the world of a small and articulate community shaping contemporary American spiritual practices. (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
McLeod, editor of Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma magazines, has drawn this collection, the third in the series, from the large and eclectic body of Buddhist writing published in 2005. The collection does a good job of reflecting the current state of Buddhism as it evolves toward its distinctly Western voice, and different readers will likely find different things to like and dislike among the quite varied selection. As McLeod notes in his introduction, "The selection of the `best' Buddhist writing is naturally a subjective process, and it cannot reflect the full range of Buddhist writing out there." Some of the names, such as Pema Chodron and Thich Nhat Hanh, will be familiar to most readers, while others will be new and pleasant surprises. The pieces chosen don't require a prior knowledge of Buddhism. A very readable and enjoyable collection suitable for any library with an interest in the subject.
