Solid Ground: Buddhist Wisdom for Difficult Times

Solid Ground is a little book.  But it’s size belies it’s excellence.  The book is comprised of three parts–three prominent Buddhist authors talk about overcoming challenge using Buddhist wisdom.  All three authors are unique and potent–in both their understanding of Buddhism and the quality of their writing.

Sylvia Boorstein’s section was my favorite.  Not because her section was a standout–but as with most spiritual books, I found that her section just simply called out to me last month.  Surely a result of where I am in my life (and in my mind).  I liked reading one section and just skimming the rest…knowing that I could come back to them later when the time is right.

So many Buddhist books sound like they’re revisions of an earlier classic.  But this book is unique and compelling…and relevant to our times.

Purchase Solid Ground from the Beliefnet Shopping Mall.
