About this title


Using Buddhism as a lens to examine NASCAR racing - and NASCAR as a means to illustrate Buddhist teachings, this title provides a fresh perspective on the field of sports and spirituality. It considers mindfulness, handling setbacks, patience, discipline, heightened awareness, impermanence, equanimity, and how we face death.
