You will even make time to think about nothing at all. Simplify your life with the art of Zen, and learn how to feel more relaxed, fulfilled, and with a renewed sense of peace. __________ 'This little treasure needs to be at every bedside' llan Lokos, author of Through the Flames, Patience, and Pocket Peace 'Zen: The Art of Simple Living makes the wisdom of the Buddha radically accessible' Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, author of Emotional Rescue and Rebel Buddha

'Mist fills the Himalayan valleys, and monsoon rain sweeps across the hills. Sometimes, during the day, a bird visits me-a deep purple whistling thrush. She perches on the window sill, and looks out with me at the rain.' This personal diary records the many small moments that constitute a life of harmony-with the self, the natural world, and friends, family and passersby. In these pages, we watch a wild plum blossom and the moon come up between two deodar trees; we hear a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof; we recognize the aftermath of loss and the consolation of old companions. "A Book of Simple Living" is a gift of beauty and wisdom from India's most loved, and most understated, writer.

Since colonial days Americans have greatly admired, variously defined, and occasionally practiced the simple life. In doing so they have provided a significant shaping force in the history of American values. Though quickly displaced by the cult of more and more, the simple life has remained an elevated ideal for a resolute few. For some it has meant a life of pious austerity; for others it has entailed conscientious consumption and aesthetic creation; for a few it has resulted in withdrawal from the larger society. Yet whatever form of simplicity has been adopted, those promoting the ideal have been animated by the same common purpose: to subordinate material desires to 'higher' activities. This richly illustrated anthology presents a fascinating and compelling array of original writings, woven together with Shi's illuminating commentary. -- publisher.
