Inspiring modern-day parables "reminiscent of the best haiku poetry-each one a thought-provoking gem" (Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, New York Times-bestselling author of The Tribe of Tiger). 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 springs from the author's meditations on fundamental aspects of Buddhist dharma as those teachings apply to the world today. Some are humorous, some sad, some erotic, some mysterious-but all are linked and balanced by themes of mindfulness, compassion, generosity, kindness, and love. Readers-whether they know anything about Buddhism or not-will find much to appreciate and enjoy in these universal tales of the human condition.
