Buddha in a Teacup
Contemporary Dharma Tales
The forty-two short tales that comprise Buddha In A Teacup are set in contemporary America, as opposed to long ago China or India. Each parable springs from the author’s meditations on fundamental aspects of Buddhist dharma as those teaching apply to the world today. Some of the tales are humorous, some sad, some erotic, some mysterious—all linked and balanced by themes of mindfulness, compassion, generosity, kindness and love. The reader need not be a Buddhist or know anything about Buddhism to fully appreciate and enjoy these universal tales of the human condition.
