Synopsis:
A significant number of Westerners studying Buddhism are Jews. What is the attraction of Buddhism? How can you be both a faithful Jew and a passionately involved Buddhist? In this landmark book, respected Buddhist teacher Sylvia Boorstein shares how her experience of 20 years of meditation practice deepened and enriched her Judaism. Using her own story -- and the same down-to-earth charm and wit that have endeared her to her many students and readers -- she shows how "mindfulness meditation" can lead to the appreciation of every moment, which imbues religion with renewed meaning.Jews and non-Jews alike will be both inspired and delighted by this presentation of how the wisdom of the Buddha and the practice of mindfulness can enhance Western spiritual life.

Review:
"With Boorstein we experience the answer to the koan how 'two' can be 'both,' and 'both' can be 'one.'"

Stephen Mitchell
