Why does an idea that’s 2,500 years old seem more relevant today than ever before? How can the Buddha’s teachings help us solve many of the world’s problems? Journalist Perry Garfinkel circumnavigated the globe to discover the heart of Buddhism and the reasons for its growing popularity—and ended up discovering himself in the process. The assignment from National Geographic couldn’t have come at a better time for Garfinkel. Burned out, laid up with back problems, disillusioned by relationships and religion itself, he was still hoping for that big journalistic break—and the answers to life’s biggest riddles as well. So he set out on a geographic, historical and personal expedition that would lead him around the world in search of those answers, and then some. First, to better understand the man who was born Prince Siddhartha Gautama, he followed the time-honored pilgrimage “in the footsteps of the Buddha” in India. From there, he tracked the historical course of Buddhism: to Sri Lanka, Thailand, China, Tibet, Japan and on to San Francisco and Europe. He found that the Buddha’s teachings have spawned a worldwide movement of “engaged Buddhism,” the application of Buddhist principles to resolve social, environmental, health, political and other contemporary problems. From East to West and back to the East again, this movement has caused a Buddhism Boom. Along the way he met a diverse array of Buddhist practitioners—Thai artists, Indian nuns, Sri Lankan school children, Zen archers in Japan, kung fu monks in China and the world’s first Buddhist comic (only in America). Among dozens of Buddhist scholars and leaders, Garfinkel interviewed His Holiness the Dalai Lama, an experience that left him speechless—almost. As just reward for his efforts, toward the end of his journey Garfinkel fell in love in the south of France at the retreat center of a leader of the engaged movement, the Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh—a romance that taught him as much about Buddhism as all the masters combined. In this original, entertaining book, Garfinkel separates Buddhist fact from fiction, sharing his humorous insights and keen perceptions about everything from spiritual tourism to Asian traffic jams to the endless road to enlightenment.

Yoga continues to be a growth industry with an estimated thirty million people in North America now practicing either privately or in most cases with a class. Though the yoga market is fractured by the great number of competing schools and philosophies, what they all have in common is the ending of the session with a period of relaxation coupled with inspiring readings. Soul to Soul fills just this need with a beautiful collection of 150 inspiring perfect-length readings plus tens of quotes that are just right for ending a yoga class or private session. Honoring many spiritual traditions, it's the perfect teaching tool or gift for yoga teachers and practitioners, or for anyone seeking uplifting messages for any occasion. Includes writing by Swami Kripalu, Thich Nhat Hanh, Deepak Chopra, Eckart Tolle, H.H the Dalai Lama, Don Miguel Ruiz, quotes from Rumi, Hafiz, Gandhi, Meister Eckart, Lao Tzu, as well as selections from the Bhagavad Gita, and the Yoga Sutras of Pantajali. Unlike most books intended for yoga teachers, Soul to Soul has strong appeal to teachers in nearly any tradition, and to a wider range of their students. John Mundahl has been a yoga teacher and practitioner for over thirty-six years. He was a resident at the original Kripalu Yoga Ashram in Sumneytown, Pennsylvania, from 1977–1981, the four years of Swami Kripalu's remarkable stay. He is the author of twelve books, including From the Heart of the Lotus, the Teaching Stories of Swami Kripalu. He lives in St. Peter, Minnesota.

Beyond the Breath is one of the first books to give a complete overview and description of sensation based vipassana meditation, the form of mediation thought of as the original method of meditation as used by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. This form of meditation, brought to the West by S.N. Geoneka, provides a means to experience emotions directly and nonverbally—accessing the mind through the body. One of the main principles of this school of meditation is that meditation alone is not sufficient practice, but that it must be combined with a whole-life and ethical commitment. M.Glickman's approach is unique—he takes a mediation practice deeply rooted within a historic Buddhist framework, and gives it a modern-day, scientific spin—he presents sensation based viapassana meditaiton and Buddhist principles in 20th-century language, secularizing ideas that may sound exotic, off-putting, or out-dated. Glickman's passion for the topic, as well as his great understanding of Buddhist concepts, make this an inspiring read.
