Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIn this book, Bhante Walpola Piyananda, a Buddhist monk from Sri Lanka, recounts his often amusing, often poignant experiences of life in America. His stories reveal the complicated, joyous, painful, baffling, and inspiring aspects of the human condition. Bhante has met and counseled a wide range of people -- the disenfranchised of society, American Buddhists trying to reconcile their practice with their very Western lifestyle, recent immigrants struggling to assimilate but also maintain their traditional values, couples dealing with relationship issues -- and each encounter is an opportunity to express true compassion and impart dharma wisdom. No situation, no matter how sticky, manages to affect his unflappable calm or his phenomenal ability to find the right parable for the moment.
