Jul 24, Algernon rated it really liked it Shelves: The author is a friend of mine going back to Larkin is a Zen teacher who puts her personality, warts and all, into her books about practicing Zen and the Buddhadharma. She is the funny single mom you might know from the office or the gym, and yet she is a trained Zen priest who has worked as a corporate trainer, who has built Zen temples and trained younger priests.
Of all her several books, this remains a contender for my favorite. Dhafma subject is an important one for the layper Disclosure: Her subject is an important one for the layperson finding their way in the modern world: The Dharma of Love.

Yet the book accomplishes one more notable thing. The Buddhist stories she includes in this book are stories about women, some of which you are likely not to have seen or heard elsewhere. The Buddhist tradition can appear to be highly sexist – and it may be more dhamra an appearance. Larkin has found, however, that there were strong women who were Buddha’s contemporaries, and their stories have messages for women in the 21st century.
It’s a gift to the reader and to American Zen.
