Product Details

Praise

“A wise, clear, and playfully irreverent account of a meditator’s journey. Patrick Ophuls speaks from experience as he points out the depth of the teachings and the seductions along the way.”
—Joseph Goldstein, author of One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism

“Erudite, humorous, intelligent, deeply insightful, extremely well written, accurate, accessible.… I want all my sangha here to read it.”
—Robert K. Hall, founding teacher of the Lomi School, Santa Rosa, California, and El Dharma retreat center, Todos Santos, Mexico

“A good introduction for the beginner and a fresh perspective for the experienced practitioner. Alternately makes us laugh at ourselves and reminds us of the poignancy of the teachings.”
—Sharon Salzberg, author of A Heart as Wide as the World

“Ophuls gives us a no-nonsense, commonsense tour of mindfulness-based meditation practice, pointing out contradictions and pitfalls, and laughing at our pretentions. … This book will help you swim to the other shore.”
—Wes Nisker, editor in chief, Inquiring Mind

“Patrick Ophuls’ style is straight-forward and engaging. He doesn’t cut any corners, and he doesn’t fluff up his writing… [Buddha Takes No Prisoners is] approachable yet elevating… The book is like a FAQ for your Buddhist practice. I definitely recommend it.”
—Home Brew Dharma

“Ophuls has done us all a favor by reframing meditation and the essentials of Buddhism in imaginative terms that are both appealing and edifying. Meditation, he says, is like spring-cleaning your heart and mind.”
