9781593766313: Buddha in a Teacup: Contemporary Dharma Tales

The forty-two short tales that comprise Buddha In A Teacup are set in contemporary America, as opposed to long ago China or India. Each parable springs from the author’s meditations on fundamental aspects of Buddhist dharma as those teaching apply to the world today. Some of the tales are humorous, some sad, some erotic, some mysterious all linked and balanced by themes of mindfulness, compassion, generosity, kindness and love. The reader need not be a Buddhist or know anything about Buddhism to fully appreciate and enjoy these universal tales of the human condition.

From the Publisher:

Buddha In A Teacup is a collection of forty-two short stories springing from mediations on Buddhist dharma. Humorous, serious, enigmatic, and poetic, these contemporary tales illuminate the mysteries of life and Buddhist thought by dramatizing turning points in the people's lives.

From the Author:

BUDDHA IN A TEACUP has now been out in the world for two years and has brought me many wonderful communications from people all over the world. Some readers first experienced the book by hearing the audio version of the stories performed by yours truly, after which they purchased the book, while some went the other way around. The comment I receive most often from readers is thanks for trusting in their intelligence and imagination and not resorting to moralizing or talking down to them. My absolute favorite comment so far was from two women who were listening to the stories while on a driving trip, and at the conclusion of "Forgiveness" they pulled off the road so they could weep without fearing to crash their car. Blessings and Thanks.
