That's Funny, You Don't Look Buddhist
To continue my Sunday feature on spiritual writings and books, today I'm going to share a book about Buddhism. That's Funny, You Don't Look Buddhist: On Being a Faithful Jew and a Passionate Buddhist, by Sylvia Boorstein. It's the fascinating record of the faith journey of a Jewish woman who finds meaning and joy with Buddhism. As she becomes more involved with Buddhism, she continues to practices her Jewish faith as well. As a Christian who is intrigued by Buddhist practices, Boorstein's journey was an insightful example of how I might navigate my own path. It is also filled with funny stories and inspirational moments. Check it out!
