The Buddha Walks Into a Bar...

New or Used: US$12.70
There's a new thirst for spirituality among young people today but they're less inclined to adjust their lives around traditional religious forms than they are to look for transformation within their existing lifestyles. And they have a natural affinity for Buddhism. This is a book for them by one of them. Lodro Rinzler speaks the language of Generation O, as his compatriots are known, and he's a respected Buddhist teacher in his own right. His book is a complete introduction to Buddhism, without the cultural trappings, in language that anyone can understand but that will be especially appreciated by young people today under thirty. It's entertaining, chatty, and often funny, but also very serious. It's for anyone who wants to use the Buddha's teachings to awaken like he did.

About the Author

Lodro Rinzler is a teacher in the Shambhala tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. He has taught numerous workshops and retreats. His column What Would Sid Do (Sid = Siddhartha, the Buddha) has appeared regularly on since 2009, and his posts there have also appeared in the Huffington Post.


-A young, New York-based Buddhist teacher, Rinzler is able to take a relaxed, colloquial approach to meditation and its many benefits because he's so well-versed in Shambhala and Tibetan Buddhism. With examples ranging from superheroes to YouTube videos, Rinzler brings timeless teachings to the buzz of now in an engaging, richly instructive, genuinely illuminating spiritual guide.---Booklist -Don't let Rinzler's youthful exuberance fool you. The kid knows his stuff.---Tricycle -This volume is far beyond a compilation of Rinzler's columns or prior work; it is a genuine introduction to living a Buddhist life without immersion in Buddhism's more esoteric practices.---Library Journal -Light-hearted, contemporary, and at times hilarious, Rinzler's book is addictively easy to read.---Nexus -Enjoyable, engaging, and inspiring. I loved the book and think it's a great introductory read for a younger person who would like to know more about Buddhism, or just life in -Rinzler's voice is approachable and funny and absolutely credible to all of the young professionals who seem to have it all but who are beginning to wonder if they are missing something really, really big.--- -The cool kid's Buddhist.---The Boston Phoenix
