“Unflinching in its exploration of Buddhist practice today . . . Rinzler offers a guidebook to developing an unconditional faith in our wakefulness.”—Shambhala Sun magazine

"Many readers will be delighted by a welcome departure from goody-goody attitudes toward Buddhist practice in Rinzler’s earnest dealings with 'taboo' subjects like sex and binge drinking..."—Tricycle


How can I be the person I want to be when I’m stuck in a job I hate? How is it possible to stay present in an era of nearly constant distractions? Can I pick someone up at a bar or club and still call myself spiritual?

This nitty-gritty guide to life for the spiritual-but-not-necessarily-religious uses Buddhist teachings to answer those burning questions and a host of others related to going out, relationships, work, and social action. Based on Lodro Rinzler’s popular advice columns, Walk Like a Buddha offers wisdom that can be applied to just the sort of dilemmas that tend to arise for anyone making even a modest attempt to walk like a Buddha—that is, to live with honesty, wisdom, and compassion in the face of whatever life surprises you with.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Well Written ... Talented Author. Would not recommend. 28. November 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The writing is superb. The diligence the author gives, in relating his own experience, as to relay life lessons, is commendable.

I personally find the lessons riddled with moral and ethical inconsistencies.

If I wanted to read a book on Buddhism that in no way challenged any part of my current life paradaigm, and justified nearly every ethically weak self concept I had ... This would be the book for me.

I would not recommend young people find merit in their worldly compulsions, nor would I recommend this book to them.

I would be remiss if did not mention that I think the context of the book is kind and heart felt, but I feel its poor leadership ... Yin without the Yang. So while I enjoyed it, in parts, I felt the content, painting Buddhism as an 'anything goes' path will attract 'anything goes' people.

I have stood beside powerful Buddhist leaders ... While they were 'anything goes' in their embracing of others, they were not 'anything goes' within what they would condone of others and not remotely 'anything goes' in how they conducted themselves or embraced values in their own lives.

Well written. The author is learned and talented. But again, nothing I would put in the hands of my sons or daughters.

In my opinion only, the book is a personally life philosophy, yes ... But not a wholy a Buddhist one.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What would the Buddha do? 17. Oktober 2013
Von John L Murphy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
What would Buddha do at a rave? Would he post on Facebook? How might he deal with the morning after regarding his partner of the night before? Given the Tripitaka fails to enlighten us, a contemporary, hip, teacher tries. He's schooled in Buddhism as entering the everyday world of many growing up and confronting how their practice may not jibe with the rest of their surroundings.

As a second-generation Buddhist, brought up with Chogyam Trungpa's Shambhala teachings, Lodro Rinzler follows up his lively and snarky "The Buddha Walks Into a Bar" (reviewed 12-24-11) with a version of "Dear Buddha" responses to questions via his blog. This shows the coming of age: he assumes Buddhism already within his readers, so he blends practical advice (e.g., about "right drinking" or horrible bosses, annoying ex's, partying, gossip, and the hookup scene) with a casually phrased, vernacular set of takes on how to interpret traditional Buddhist precepts.

Rinzler continues the style of his first book: so, unlike many published by Shambhala or counterparts, there's four-letter words and slang and references aplenty to what millennials might regard as pressing concerns more than those of the earlier counterculture. I find, as one born between the flower children and the branded wired era, his reactions to equanimity in a world that expects us only to rush, bicker, contend, and grapple refreshing. I realize his feverish combination of wit, pop culture nods, his bow-tied attire, his sense of East Coast "alternative" enclave making an entitled living, his expectation we may be eager to pursue the temptations of a frenzied, and commodified society as he may be, and his unflagging support for the current White House administration which arises from his all-out campaigning for it the last two cycles might put off a few while its casual tone attracts many.

Still, for the patient reader, and that is what appeals, for those in an uncertain job market, who labor away at less "creative" workspaces, who wonder the point of a 24/7 online presence, Rinzler tries to offer a voice not heard too much even in today's Buddhist circles. Similarly for the similar audience of Noah Levine's The Heart of the Revolution (2011), the tonglen meditation of generating compassion and engagement with a wounded earth and its inhabitants arises as one immediate way to ease suffering. Also, Rinzler's frequent reminder of the danger of shenpa, excessive attachment, helps to let readers let go of what so much around us insists we hold on to. This can be rooting for a team beyond reason (the Red Sox certainly do apply, alas, as he shows), or a fixation on any person, idea, or situation when Buddhist emphasis on surrendering such adhesion needs to be paramount.

Changing for the better one's community, he urges, can invite us to look at wherever we are. "Be it a boardroom, a bar, a biker gang, or even a strip club," one can enter that situation with an aim to "being fully there and being of service to others." He counsels to "take the action that causes the least amount of suffering" as a kind of Occam's Razor (my analogy) to come closest to "the nature of the Buddha's words" in tricky encounters or choices. He urges that the "more you can drop the idea of what you need to be happy, the happier you will be. The more you can relax into supporting movements that you believe are being of benefit to others, the more you will find you have energy and openness to offer to these movements." But, before rushing out to change everyone else, Rinzler suggests care for one's own intentions and one's own abilities. "This process begins at home."

So, while I know critics who castigate Rinzler for too complacent a nature to reconcile himself with the unjust system we labor in, or who dismiss his version of dharma teaching as too glib, a reader coming to this book with more open-mindedness may come away with some reward. While Rinzler will not likely include an answer to a query from his blog exactly what you need for your problem, he may reveal insight into how a more thoughtful, less selfish, and more long-range reflection can assist your own growth, your freer nature ready to handle difficulties more flexibly, and your self-understanding of how getting too tangled in what comes and goes fades next to what's necessary.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Walking your own path 21. Oktober 2013
Von Luke D Salter - Veröffentlicht auf
For many of us like myself who any of us who have identified ourselves as practitioners on the Buddhist path (or sympathizers) we all come across many questions, doubts, and insights as to what it means to be Buddhist in the 21st century, which by any measure is not all that easy, especially considering we are trying to adapt and modify a system of teachings that is 2600 years old. However for those of us who have watched how the core teachings of Buddhism have adapted to fit the culture of the time from India, to China, Southeast Asia, Japan, into the modern era in the Western World, we are able to see that what lies at the core of the path is our own personal assessment of ourselves and our relationship to the world we experience. What I admired about this book is the fact that Lodro attempts to be a mirror to reflect our own truths and understanding of what it means to be a practitioner on this path. In that he does not give us the answer but presents viewpoints to allow us to question what it means to not do harm but cultivate and recognize the basic goodness in ourselves and others. While this is no easy task, at the end of the day it is really up to our own selves to figure out our own truths, which I feel Lodro does a wonderful job of putting things into perspective for the reader as to how they will navigate their own path through the unlimited possibilities that life will present from the boardroom, to relationships, drinking and substances, and many other contemporary issues facing the modern day practitioner.

5.0 von 5 Sternen To the point, modern, practical - buddhism in the 21st century 17. Dezember 2013
Von Jakob Brix - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Straightforward, though not easy implementable, advices from a compassionate heart on the complicated issues of modern life in western industrial and city areas. Easy to read, easy to understand - the hard part is staying with your breath and your emotions with an open heart and let your heart guide you from there. There are no easy solutions to life, but this little easy read book gives you a hint of how you navigate modern city life based on the foundations of buddhism. No eastern mysticism, no "religion" - just life.
