About this title


Clear, direct and concise, Philip Kapleau's "To Cherish All Life" marshals the basic religious, humanitarian, and scientific reasons for becoming vegetarian. Expanding on the Buddhist principle of cherishing all life, Kapleau's compelling discussion examines crucial Buddhist texts, thoughtfully considers the spiritual-ethical dimensions of the issue, and speaks cogently to those with a religious or humanitarian respect for all life.

About the Author:

After thirteen years of Zen training in Japan, Roshi Philip Kapleau founded the Rochester Zen Center in 1966. He is also the author of "The Three Pillars of Zen," "Awakening to Zen," "Zen: Merging of East and West," "The Zen of Living and Dying," and "Straight to the Heart of Zen." His Dharma-heirs lead the Rochester, Vermont, Toronto, Denver, Mountain Gate, and Windhorse Zen Centers.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
