Eloquent Silence: Nyogen Senzaki’s Gateless Gate and Other Previously Unpublished Teachings and Letters: “Roko Sherry Chayat has produced an elegant and loving tribute to this unique figure, a lively mix of koan commentary, dharma talks, poetry, and personal correspondence illuminating both man and monk.”
The Lotus Sutra: A Contemporary Translation of a Buddhist Classic: “Difficult as it may be to interpret ancient Tibetan Buddhist imagery for contemporary meditators, it is perhaps even more challenging to make historical Buddhist texts accessible. In a new translation of The Lotus Sutra, Gene Reeves aims to do just this. Reeves uses everyday language wherever possible, translating into English many words that previous works have left in Sanskrit. This approach is particularly appropriate for the Lotus Sutra, which emphasizes that enlightenment is attainable for everyone.”
The Best of Inquiring Mind: 25 Years of Dharma, Drama, and Uncommon Insight: “Profound and entertaining, a highly readable time capsule from an extraordinary quarter century of North American Buddhism. If a given chapter doesn’t grab you, no problem. Turn the page and there will be something completely different. That’s the strength of this collection, which is both enjoyable and enlightening.”
