Buddhism of the Heart - Praise

Reflections on Shin Buddhism and Inner Togetherness

“Shin, a heart-based Buddhism, is geared toward laypeople, so it is only fitting that Wilson's book is user-friendly, with a helpful glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading at the back, plus a liberal sprinkling of humor throughout.”—Shambhala Sun

“A much needed introduction to a tradition little understood in the West. Jeff Wilson’s illuminating account of his practice as a Shin Buddhist describes a path founded on humility, trust, and wonder, a way of life that celebrates a wise acceptance of human imperfection rather than a longing to overcome it.”—Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism without Beliefs

“Full of warmth, humor, and excellent storytelling.”—Sumi Loundon, editor of Blue Jean Buddha and The Buddha's Apprentices

Buddhism of the Heart is a clear, insightful discussion of basic teachings of Shin Buddhism. The author, writing from the heart, is candid and direct. It is an easy reading text for seekers.”—Alfred Bloom, Emeritus Professor of Religion, University of Hawaii

“Arranged in brief meditations anchored in Jeff’s own life, this book's approach is personal, intimate, and always inviting. I recommend this book to anyone seeking to live more authentically, more deeply.”—James Ishmael Ford, Unitarian Universalist Minister and author of Zen Master Who? and If You're Lucky, Your Heart Will Break
