The journal, Inquiring Mind, has long been at the fore of contemporary Buddhist thought, and this compendium of articles, stories, interviews, and poetry traces the many intersections between Buddhism and the Western world, from essays on the work of social activists, to personal stories about the ways we use our bodies and the process of watching them expire. Rich in insight, humor, and world-renowned expertise, The Best of Inquiring Mind is an unprecedented gathering of wisdom from the minds of some of the most influential thinkers in the realm of modern Dharma. In this collection are contributions from Gary Snyder, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kornfield, Ram Dass, and many more.
