From Library Journal:

This ambitious anthology includes poems and essays by 45 contemporary American poets who are practicing Buddhists. They represent a refreshingly wide range of poetic styles, from the looseness of John Cage and Allen Ginsberg to the more formal verse of Jane Hirschfield and Olga Broumas. The book also offers the reader an introduction to the diversity of American Buddhism. The poetry is uneven in quality; from the impenetrable ("of tea/how a fox/ under/ jagged rocks/ this shirt/but not an/ empty sack") to the more accessible ("I rub the dark hollow of the bowl/ with garlic, near to the fire enough/so that fire reflects on the wood,/a reverie that holds emptiness/ in high regard." An introduction by Gary Snyder is included. For Buddhist studies as well as contemporary poetry collections.
