Explains how to practice as a Buddhist in a western society in a way that is both authentically Buddhist and authentically western…. charts a much-needed middle way between imported Buddhist traditions that can be culturally alien and a vague Buddhism diluted by western consumerism…. essential reading for all those drawn to the Buddha’s teachings but not aligned to a particular Buddhist tradition…. describes a practice that draws on all the main Buddhist traditions, and is democratic, egalitarian, and expressed in everyday English…. makes the essential elements of Buddhist practice relevant to the western practitioner, with clear and succinct explanations…. Almost made me want to become a Buddhist again!
