Just ordered Lodro Rinzler's new book, The Buddha Walks Into A Bar: A Guide To Life For A New Generation, and cannot WAIT to read it.
Check it out:
"This isn’t your grandmother’s book on meditation. It’s about integrating that 'spiritual practice' thing into a life that includes beer, sex, and a boss who doesn’t understand you. It’s about making a difference in yourself and making a difference in your world—whether you’ve got everything figured out yet or not. Lodro Rinzler is a bright and funny young teacher with a knack for showing how the Buddhist teachings can have a positive impact on every little nook and cranny of your life—whether you’re interested in being a Buddhist or not."Yes, please.
Pony Express, get that book to my doorstep pronto.
