Item Description

 

Dig into six servings of plainspeaking from the mind and pen of Brad Warner and New World Library.

In Letter to a Dead Friend About Zen Brad Warner writes about the night he learns that his childhood friend Marky has died. He's about to speak to a group of Zen students in Hamburg, Germany. It?s the last thing he feels like doing. What he wants to do instead is tell his friend everything he never said, to explain Zen ?to those who don?t understand what I do for a living or why I care about this crazy philosophy and this weird meditation practice I do everyday.?

Don't Be a Jerk: and Other Practical Advice from Dogen, Japan's Greatest Zen Master, a radical but reverent paraphrasing of Dogen?s Treasury of the True Dharma Eye.

It Came from Beyond Zen: More Practical Advice from Dogen, Japan?s Greatest Zen Master is volume 2 of Brad Warner?s radical but reverent paraphrasing of Dogen?s Treasury of the True Dharma Eye.

Sit Down and Shut Up: Punk Rock Commentaries on Buddha, God, Truth, Sex, Death, and Dogen's Treasury of the Right Dharma Eye. In 2003, Brad Warner blew the top off the Buddhist book world with his irreverent autobiography/manifesto, Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies, and the Truth about Reality. Now in his second book, Sit Down and Shut Up, Brad tackles one of the great works of Zen literature, the Shobogenzo, by thirteenth-century Zen master Dogen.

Sex, Sin, and Zen: A Buddhist Exploration of Sex from Celibacy to Polyamory and Everything in Between. With his one-of-a-kind blend of autobiography, pop culture, and plainspoken Buddhism, Brad Warner explores an A-to-Z of sexual topics ? from masturbation to dating, gender identity to pornography.

Zen Wrapped in Karma Dipped in Chocolate: A Trip through Death, Sex, Divorce, and Spiritual Celebrity in Search of the True DharmaHow does a real-life Zen master ? not the preternaturally calm, cartoonish Zen masters depicted by mainstream culture ? help others through hard times when he?s dealing with pain of his own? How does he meditate when the world is crumbling around him? Is meditation a valid response or just another form of escapism? These are the questions Brad Warner ponders in Zen Wrapped in Karma Dipped in Chocolate.

New World Library, publisher of "books and audios that inspire and challenge us to improve the quality of our lives and our world", celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2007 buoyed by the continuing success of Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now and Practicing the Power of Now. In 2001, New World Library worked with the Joseph Campbell Foundation to introduce The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell series.
