        The Practical Buddhist

        The Practical Buddhist

        "Barry,  I read your amazing, kind and spacious book. Thank you for putting into words the path I have been walking. You are very brave to open yourself to the world... My favorite thing I am taking from your book is, kindness is the action of compassion."    -- Robin

        I enjoyed this book. What I liked most about it was the fact that the author really wasn't prescribing any sort of belief system or way of living. He detailed his own story and how his practical Buddhism applied to his life. I think many people will find this book engaging and will be able to take pieces of it to enrich their own lives. I myself share the author's philosophy so I may have had a different reaction to it than some people might. For me, it was nice to read the thoughts of someone who thinks similarly to myself. That's always comforting, isn't it?  --James

        "Short, readable chapters, with enlightening personal examples, make this an easy, but not shallow read. Several things in this book, though far from my own personal belief set, will be tumbling around in my brain for awhile, sure to find expression in some changes in my life. Thanks for sharing, Barry!"   --Kate

        Mr. Morris' religious journey took him outside of religion altogether to the mindfulness at the core of Buddhist practice. He recounts this journey in the format of a self-interview, a structure that emphasizes the stripping-away of the unessential in his personal story as well as in the form of practice he describes. His approach shows a good way to reconcile the benefits of practice with non-Asian culture, secularism, or even with your existing religion if you are so inclined.   --Meg

        The Practical Buddhist strips away a lot of the chaff normally found in Buddhist books and just provides the wheat. It provides access to a belief set that I have studied for years and presents it to those new to Buddhism in a simple, easy to understand way. It has joined Mindfulness in Plain English by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana as sources I recommend when asked about what I believe in. Well done, Barry!   -- Jeff
