Banyen's Description: 

The Buddha Smiles brings together Mari Gayatri Stein’s delightful “dharmatoons.” The book follows a group of human and non-human seekers as they seek their enlightenment, exposing their strengths and weaknesses (and ours as well) in the process. The Buddha Smiles teaches the nature of Buddhist thought through cartoons on the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, and the nature of the Hindrances along the path. Many of these over 250 cartoons will make you laugh while others will gently and wisely shed light on your fears and emotional pains.

“Mari sees and hears with a cartoonist’s wit... She is very funny. Her cartoonist’s eye view is balanced by good understanding. She says, with a few strokes of her pen, what would take many words to explain, and she makes us laugh. May the delight that arises in our hearts as we meet her images of us coming and going inspire our practice for the benefit of all beings.” —Sylvia Boorstein, author of It’s Easier Than You Think

“When the going gets tough, consider thumbing through these pages. The Buddha smiles, and we can smile back.” —Inquiring Mind
