DHARMA DELIGHT a Visionary Post Pop Comic Guide to Buddhism & Zen

A Fun Way To Learn About Dharma Illustrated In Comic Format 

How do you teach kids about Dharma, and make them excited about  the teachings of Buddhism and Zen? "Musho" Rodney Alan Greenblat has figured out a way to bring his own experience into a creative, fun comic book. Topics covered are the central teachings of Buddhism: the Four Novel Truths, the Sutras, the Bodhisattvas, and most of all, the profound teaching of Buddhanature and one's own role in the world. 

The book is powerful in its simplicity. The illustrations are lively, yet juxtaposed beautifully against the serious topic. It is a truly delightful book for adults and children to read. The comic aspect of it adds a friendly, visual touch that is relatable and readable. 

The idea is that Dharmas appear everywhere if we are awake to them. Some Dharmas are very difficult and require hardship and long hours of practice. Often the most challenging teachings are the ones that offer the most insight and unexpected gateways to FREEDOM.

For any kid (or adult) contemplating the meaning of life, Dharma Delight is a guide that will enlighten their thoughts and lead them through a serious of discovery. One that will be truly joyous and meaningful. 

Highly recommend this book.

The Best Kind Of People by Zoe Whittall

Zoe Whittall's book has been highly touted in the literary world. Now placed on the Giller Prize shortlist, the novel is on the wish list of many bookish fans to win the coveted title in November. But, beyond being just a literary piece, can this book that's highly controversial in its subject matter, illuminate the discussion on rape culture? 

There was so much discussion about The Best Kind Of People, and the hype inevitably caught up to me. Initially I was skeptical of the subject matter, but talk about its literary feat peaked my interest. I was in one of those book reading moods where the thought of committing to a heavy topic almost felt like an onset to depression. 

But, I'm quite glad I ignored that glass-half-empty feeling, because The Best Kind Of People is anything but that. Zoe Whittall's writing style is different. You feel like a fly on the wall taking in the events without necessarily being sucked into the drama. You don't necessarily have to take sid…

Nostalgia by M.G. Vassanji

"It's midnight and the lion is out."

This thought is persistent and insistent in Presley Smith's life. It haunts him and immobilizes his being. Is it some message from a previous life? Will this memory penetrate into his everyday existence and destroy his sanity?

Dr. Frank Sina wants to find out. Why does this phenomenon in his patient's mind begin with this single thought? A seemingly meaningless string of words that have no meaning for Presley Smith. In his sessions with Presley, Dr. Sina begins to creates a handwritten record of anything from his own or his patient's memories. He knows that whatever scraps were retrievable are probably already lost in the abyss of electromagnetic noise. 

As people leap from one life into another in an attempt to defy death, sometimes the switch is not a clean one. There is a slight chance that the past may catch up to a current life. And when those flashes of memory, slowly make their way in, they can haunt the person. Trying…

The Wolves Of Currumpaw by Wiliam Grill

A modern re-telling of Ernest Thompson Seaton's Lobo, the King of Currumpaw. Beautifully illustrated with a hint of sadness to the drawings. Set in the wilderness of New Mexico, in 1893, The Wolves Of Currumpaw is the story of a great wolf named Lobo. It recounts the hunting history of man trying to kill Lobo, but who eventually learns to respect the wolf. The storytelling is a bit complex and is something that will initiate a lot of conversation amongst the younger readers. It is also a longer book that will appeal to older readers. The story is a wonderful introduction of man's relationship with nature and includes accounts of Thompson's legacy to conservation. 
A reminder that history should never be forgotten.
