"He's a clown. Clowns in America look like this—they think it looks funny. You see
? He's smiling." The colonel shook his head. "His face is white. White is the color

Iron & Silk, Mark Salzman's bestselling account of his adventures as an English teacher and martial arts student in China, introduced a writer of enormous charm and keen insight into the cultural chasm between East and West. Now Salzman returns to China in his first novel, which follows the adventures of Hsun-ching, a naive but courageous orphan, and the formidable and mysterious Colonel Sun, who together travel from mainland China to San Francisco, risking everything to track down an elusive Buddhist scripture called The Laughing Sutra. Part Tom Sawyer, part Tom Jones, The Laughing Sutra draws us into an irresistible narrative of danger and comedy that speaks volumes about the nature of freedom and the meaning of loyalty.

"The central idea of the Lotus Sutra is integration, that the teaching of three vehicles is an expedient to enable all to reach enlightenment. The Lotus Sutra can be considered the scripture of a religious movement within Mahayana Buddhism that set out to integrate the religion, thought, and culture of the peoples who lived in northwestern India around the beginning of the common era. This book verifies the historical background, together with the relevant social and cultural factors that encouraged such religious harmony and fostered establishment of the idea of integration. It approaches those phenomena through not only philology but also historical science, archaeology, art history, paleography, epigraphy, and numismatics."--Publisher's website.

This practical guide to finding spirituality at the office can help reduce stress and turn workplace challenges into a path toward enlightenment. The Office Sutras can help transform any job—even a terrible one—into an active part of spiritual practice. With wit and wisdom, Marcia Menter helps us recognize that the things that drive us crazy at work can be doorways to growth and understanding if we approach them with an open mind and heart. In chapters like "The Slough of Suckiness," "Are They Paying Me Enough?," and "The Dream That Got Away," Menter shares practical techniques, exercises, and mantras for finding divinity in the resentments that can make anyone's job miserable. Each chapter includes inspiring mantras for bad days, such as "If God had wanted me to spend my whole life in my office, he would have given me a nicer office." Menter contends that the job you have right now, for all its imperfections, may be just the spiritual challenge you need to confront the most important issues of life—issues like self-worth and fulfillment and paying your way in the world. The Office Sutras will help readers find opportunities for growth and peace in even the most stultifying of work situations.

This is the first Western language book to examine the chou ("clown") role-type in traditional Chinese drama--a role-type credited with so much importance that some critics insist that "withouth the chou, there would not be drama." This assertion is evaluated through an analysis of historical documents and translated play texts, fieldwork research, and from the perspectives of ethnomusicology and anthropology.
