The Buddha Smiles is a delightful gathering of Mari Gayatri Stein’s cartoons, or dharmatoons. The book follows a group of human and non-humans as they seek their enlightenment, exposing their strengths and weaknesses (and ours as well) in the process. The Buddha Smiles gently teaches the nature of Buddhist thought through cartoons on the Four Noble Truths, The Eightfold Path, and the nature of the Hindrances along the path. First full-length book of Buddhist cartoons.

May the delight that arises in our hearts as we meet her images of us coming and going inspire our practice for the benefit of all beings." -- Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think: The

"Mari sees and hears with a cartoonist's wit . . . She is very funny. Her cartoonist's eye view is balanced by good understanding.
