Such is the powerful simplicity of Buddhist teachings that a one-or-two-line quotation from a seminal Buddhist text can resonate throughout our days and nights. The infinite wisdom of this religion has touched people from all walks of life from all over the world.
For readers interested in discovering this rich tradition and cultivating a daily practice, 365 Buddha provides a single thought--a piece of wisdom to carry with one--for each day of the year. Filled with thought-provoking and inspiring quotations from the greatest Buddhist teachers throughout history, including Dogen, Suzuki, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama, and Milarepa, 365 Buddha is an invaluable resource and companion for living.
This year has seen a stable of books and devotionals that aim to enhance daily life with Buddhist principles: 24/7 Dharma (Tuttle), Zen 24/7 (Harper San Francisco) and The Buddha's Book of Daily Meditations (Shambhala), just to name a few. Putnam/Tarcher joins the party with Jeff Schmidt's 365 Buddha: Daily Meditations. While there's nothing original about the book's concept, Schmidt is refreshingly honest about that: the opening epigraph actually assures readers that "nothing new will be said here." This is a nice book of short daily meditations, but it's virtually indistinguishable from its peers.
