Shelfari edited the description of Taking Tea with The Buddha: The Gift of Practice Wednesday, August 31, 2011.
In this concise, carefully constructed and clearly written book, Bradly Jay Keller leads the reader on a journey of discovery on the path of Buddhism. The distinction between the map and the territory is useful here. The author, as our tour guide, takes us on the actual terrain of the meditation practice, in the Zen tradition of Mahayana Buddhism. But he makes judicious use of historical and philosophical maps of Zen Buddhism, and other schools of Buddhism, Western psychology and Hinduism too. He presents theory in the context of the practice of meditation—both sitting meditation and incorporating meditation in one's daily activity.
