Product Details


“A storyteller gifted with great compassion, wisdom and humor . . . an unusual and charming glimpse into the life of one of those smiling men in saffron robes and his pastoral mission in the heart of a modern Western city.”—L.A. Times

“In this pleasant collection of 20 stories about his experiences in the U.S., Bhante weaves narrative, sacred texts and cultural observations into a serviceable whole cloth. . . . They all have a wonderful, if sometimes bittersweet, flavor in this East-meets-West compilation.”—Publishers Weekly

“Serene and friendly, Bhante Piyananda invites confidences, and he recounts many of these conversations with great delicacy, warmth, and purpose.”— Booklist

“These charming stories embody the wise heart of a Buddhist elder. In a practical and warm way, Bhante inspires us to walk our talk as Buddhists in this world.”—Jack Kornfield
