Stumbling Toward Enlightenment

by

Stumbling Toward Enlightenment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A humorous and honest collection of Buddhist wisdom from a Western beginner'­s perspective.

Instead of promising a straight and clear path to enlightenment, author and teacher Geri Larkin shows us that even stumbling along that path can lead to self-discovery and awakening, especially if we prize the journey and not the destination. With candor, affection, and earthy wisdom, Larkin shares her experiences as a beginning and continuing Buddhist. This spirituality classic shows any seeker that it's possible to stumble, smile, and stay Zen through it all.

 

 

Synopsis:

Described by the author as "accessible Zen", "Stumbling Toward Enlightenment" evolved out of the frequent requests which Larkin has received for written copies of the dharma talks she gave at the Ann Arbor Buddhist Temple and the Chicago Zen Buddhist temple in 1995 and 1996. In the book, Larkin shares Buddhist teachings from the Dhammapada which she hopes will help readers "walk a little straighter, fly a little sooner".
