Blue Jean Buddha: Voices of Young Buddhists based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I read Blue Jean Buddha on a recommendation. Even though I am an atheist, I have always been interested in the philosophy of Buddhism. When I started reading this book, it only reaffirmed my beliefs that Buddhism has certain truths that are relevant for people of all religions or like myself, no religion. The Buddhist mindset is very altruistic. I think the world would be a better place if we all tried to be a little less selfish and aspire to be truly selfless. Buddhism advocates activism for social justice, world peace, nuclear disarmament, and the environment among other causes. This book has essays from young Buddhists about how and why Buddhism is their way of life. You won't be reading about religious dogma in this book. You won't be preached at in these essays. Blue Jean Buddha is a thought-provoking book and an inspiration to be a little more socially responsible
I'm a young American (20-something) and I am so happy that someone is finally paying attention to my generation of practicing Buddhists! This book is interesting whether you're a young person just discovering Buddhism, or an older person interested in the new spirtiual motivations in youth culture today. It covers a wide range of Buddhist traditions. I am truly glad someone finally published a book like this one. I also highly recommend a little gift book written by a 20-something American Buddhist named Taro Gold called 'Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom.' I hope more and more young Buddhist voices will be found in print in the near future.
a great and helpful book. whether you're a young person just discovering Buddhism, or an older person interested in the new spirtiual motivations in youth culture today, BJB will really paint a series of vivid pictures. totally enjoyable, and totally real.
