For over a quarter century Inquiring Mind—a free journal of the Vipassana community, published in Berkeley—has been a path-blazer at the forefront of Buddhism in the West. Rich in insight, humour, and world-renowned expertise, The Best of Inquiring Mind is an unprecedented gathering of wisdom from the minds of some of the most influential thinkers in the realm of modern Dharma.

Inquiring Mind is a wonderful expression of Buddhism in the west—provocative, intelligent, creative and fun… sowing seeds of wisdom, compassion and community wherever it is read.” —Sharon Salzberg

Inquiring Mind is like a splash of cool water on your face in the morning; it wakes you up. Inquiring Mind is like a cup of fine coffee; it keeps you going with its dharma and humanity. Inquiring Mind is like a banana peel; it makes you laugh. Inquiring Mind is simply one of the great treasures of the Buddhist journals that we have in the West.” —Jack Kornfield

Inquiring Mind is in a class by itself, a Dharma jewel… willing to take on the tough issues.” —Jon Kabat-Zinn

Inquiring Mind captures the creative, expansive expression of Dharma in the West. It explores the on-going challenge of bringing the depth and timelessness of the Buddha’s teachings to the specific conditions of our times. A wonderful integration of dharma and daily life.” —Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace

“Celebrating 25 years of authentic voice and spirit, Inquiring Mind is a true anchorage for those who seek deep ground in tumultuous times. Here is a publication that walks its talk, is beautifully written, edited, illustrated and designed. Inquiring Mind speaks the living vernacular of engaged dharma practice for all beings.” — Wendy Johnson, author of Gardening at the Dragons Gate
