The editors of Shambhala Sun have again assembled a collection of essays and book excerpts spanning a wide range within the realm of Buddhist writers. A collection of book excerpts and reprints of articles/essays from Shambhala Sun, Buddhadharma, and Tricycle magazines, this comprehensive text gathers thoughts and texts from such writers as Jack Kornfield, Thich Nhat Hahn, Phillip Moffitt, Pema Chodron, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, and many others into one anthology.
From the heart-wrenching “The Blue Poppy” by Kathleen Willis Morton to essays on environmentalism and ecology, The Best Buddhist Writing 2009 spans the entire experience of Buddhist life and thought. From Shambhala Publications and available from your local, independent bookseller. (Shop local, shop independent, and tell ’em you saw it on Elephant Journal!)
