Instructions to the Cook: A Zen Master's Lessons in Living a Life That Matters -- by Bernard Glassman & Rick Fields
OUT OF STOCK - PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON


 
In Instructions to the Cook, Glassman draws on the teaching of Dogen, the thirteenth-century founder of the Japanese Soto Zen tradition, to relate his own experiences as twentieth-century abbot-cum-entrepreneur. This book describes Glassman's vision and his work, particularly with the Greyston Mandala, a network of businesses and not-for-profits Glassman established in a poverty-stricken section of Yonkers. It is the fruit of his long years of Buddhist practice and also of all the ways in which he has tried to improve the quality of life for those on the bottom rungs of society. Glassman is forging a new, American brand of Buddhism, applying the principles of spirituality both in the community and in the marketplace, successfully practicing nonattachment while swimming with the sharks.
