Banyen's Description: 

We spend countless hours training our dogs, but how often do we consider what they have to teach us? Our canine companions aren't just our best friends, explains Tami Simon. They naturally embody many of the spiritual principles we ourselves aspire to. The Dharma of Dogs shares the reflections of Buddhist writers and other teachers who have found a source of deep truth and practical wisdom beneath the furry surface of our four-legged friends.

There is a welcome, a joy, a delirium of delight that dogs offer us that makes it impossible for us to believe we are not loved. And to know that love is a good thing to share, whatever the form! —Alice Walker, from her essay in the book

For anyone who loves dogs—and who has learned and grown through this special relationship—these essays offer humor, solace, inspiration, and insight into the life lessons our dogs make available to us. Readers join bestselling authors such as Alice Walker, Geneen Roth, Lama Surya Das, Mark Nepo, Adysshanti, Eckhart Tolle, Roshi Joan Halifax and many others to explore such themes as unconditional love, connecting with nature, facing our fears, and more. Wonderful photos, too, of each of the authors with their furry friends.

“You will be charmed, moved, entertained, and totally uplifted by these stories of our communing with dogs. Each has its particular flavor of Zen-dog wisdom. And each is a falling in love. Beyond delightful, this collection is a total winner!” —Tara Brach, author of True Refuge
