View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Whacking Buddha is a unique comparison of the works of William Shakespeare and the world of Buddhism. This book takes you on a journey through Shakespeare's work and the Buddha's teachings, opening your mind to the philosophies within.

Whacking Buddha is spiritual-literary dynamite.
--Jon Winokur, author of Zen to Go

Does Will Shakespeare have a Buddha nature? Mark Lamonica makes an intriguing case in Whacking Buddha, a fascinating journey into Elizabethan dharma. Delightful, surprising, and smart.
--Dinty W. Moore, author of The Accidental Buddhist

Shakespeare and Buddha--who knew? But Shakespeare, who gave us " the mind's eye" and Buddha of the third eye have much to say to one another. The dialogue between the Bard and the Buddha is rich, and Mark Lamonica has opened it up for us in a wild disorderly way, for our pleasure and instruction.
--Rodger Kamenetz, author of The Jew in the Lotus

Whacking Buddha is full of thought provoking ideas. Mark Lamonica has surpassed his previous books in this well researched and carefully woven tapestry.
--Dr. Bruce Goldberg, author of Past Lives, Future Lives Revealed

Whacking Buddha challenges our assumptions about Shakespeare--and by extension, Western culture. Mark Lamonica's theory that Shakespeare was the reincarnation of Buddha, seems at first preposterous, then plausible, and by the end of the book, almost inevitable. Like a master illusionist, he turns the Buddha into Shakespeare and back again before our very eyes.
--Norrie Epstein-author of The Friendly Shakespeare
