Banyen's Description: 

The Competitive Buddha by legendary coach Jerry Lynch (with a foreword by Steve Kerr, coach of the Golden State Warriors) is about mastery, leadership, and spirituality. Learn what you need to keep, what you need to discard, and what you need to add to your mental, emotional, and spiritual skill set as an athlete, coach, leader, parent, CEO, or any other performer in life. Understand how Buddhism can help you to be better prepared for sports and life, and how sports and life can teach you about Buddhism. Discover how people from all parts of the world have brought together the Buddha and athletics for greater fun, enjoyment, and pleasure during their athletic efforts.

On the Court, Field, and Beyond. Dr. Lynch is an avid runner and biker and he has coached athletes at the high school and AAU level. He earned his doctorate in psychology at Penn State University and has done extensive post-doctoral work in the area of philosophy, Taoist and Buddhist thought, comparative religions, leadership development, and performance enhancement.

I will demonstrate how certain core Buddha values will inspire you to embrace and navigate the uncharted waters of mastery. I believe you will find the Buddha mind and the Kobe Bryant Mamba Mentality both quite interesting and very useful. When it comes to leadership and coaching, this book will teach you how the best of the best coaches today use these ancient methods for our modern times, especially when it comes to the servant leader concept. You will learn very specific strategies and techniques to implement this special way to guide and lead.
 

All of this is supplemented with inspiring Zen stories as well as an extensive bibliography to help you continue to learn and use these teachings for a lifetime.

"In his latest book, Jerry continues to explore dimensions of consciousness that will help you to view competition in a profound, refreshing way. In The Competitive Buddha, he tyransforms the world of athletics into a sacred space for absorbing practical, usable life lessons and ageless wisdom for higher performance, not just in sports but in all of life." —Michael Murphy, founder of Esalen Institute and author of Golf in the Kingdom

Among Jerry Lynch's other books are The Way of the Champion, Coaching with Heart and Spirit of the Dancing Warrior
