"A guide to Buddhism for 20-somethings who are grappling with the ups and downs of adulthood—from an eloquent and funny young teacher
This isn’t your grandmother’s book on meditation. The Buddha Walks Into a Bar… is about integrating that "spiritual practice thing" into a life that includes beer, sex, social media, and a boss who doesn’t understand you. It’s about making a difference in yourself and making a difference in your world, whether you’ve got everything figured out yet or not. This is Buddhism for a new generation—one that is leaving the safe growth spurts of college and entering a turbulent, uncertain workforce.
With humor and candor, teacher Lodro Rinzler offers an introduction to Buddhism for anyone who wants to ride the waves of life with mindfulness and compassion. You’ll learn how to use meditation techniques to work with your own mind, how to manage the pervasive "Incredible Hulk Syndrome," how to relax into your life despite external pressures, and ultimately how you can start to bring light to a dark world. Applying Rinzler's Buddhist teachings can have a positive impact on every nook and cranny of your life—whether you’re interested in being a Buddhist or not."
