Lions Roar : November 2015
BUDDHISM FOR COUPLES By Sarah Napthali Jeremy P. Tarcher/Penguin 2014; 253 pp., $15.95 (paper) In Buddhism for Couples, Sarah Napthali notes that “most couples come to counseling in the hope that their partner will finally see their faults and change.” But what if, instead, a Bud- dhist perspective could shed light on how to be more self-aware, calm, and compassionate toward both your partner and yourself? This humorous and honest text explores coupleship through the lens of the four noble truths and the eightfold path. Napthali cites examples from her own marriage and tackles thorny subjects, from housework to infi- delity. Each chapter offers a “Things to Contemplate” and a “Things to Do” section, translating these concepts into practi- cal application. FINDING YOURSELF IN THE KITCHEN Kitchen Meditations and Inspired Recipes from a Mindful Cook By Dana Velden Rodale 2015; 249 pp., $24.99 (paper) When life gets overwhelm- ing, there’s nothing like cut- ting two gallons of carrot coins to gain perspective. In Finding Yourself in the Kitchen, Zen priest Dana Velden looks at the chal- lenges and satisfactions of the ordinary kitchen as a place where we can find nourishment for our deepest hungers. An extension of her popular “Weekend Meditation” column on TheKitchn.com, Velden offers thoughts on subjects such as “When You Wash the Dishes, the Dishes Also Wash You” and “How to Be Angry in the Kitchen.” A former head cook at San Francisco Zen Center, Velden continues the great tradition of such food writers as Ed Brown and Deborah Madison in the Zen Center/Tassajara/ Greens cooking tradition. Finding Yourself in the Kitchen also includes meditation techniques, practical kitchen tips, and some of Velden’s favorite recipes. LISTENING TO STONE The Art and Life of Isamu Noguchi By Hayden Herrera FSG 2015; 575 pp., $40 (cloth) Hayden Herrera described the life of Isamu Noguchi with the grace and delicacy of the great sculptor himself. A creative, fierce, and lost figure, Noguchi’s art was based in identity—of the materials he worked with and his own. Nogu- chi was of Japanese and American parentage, and his drive to give form to mixed identi- ties led to his working in figurative sculpture, as well to design- ing gardens, monuments, and public spaces. He also created simple, useful, and beautiful objects for everyday living, such as his elegant Akari paper lanterns. Herrera’s biography of Nogu- chi allows the breathing space for the artist himself to emerge, much like sculptures rising from the raw materials whose essence Noguchi revered. LOVE EVERYONE The Transcendent Wisdom of Neem Karoli Baba Told Through the Stories of the Westerners Whose Lives He Transformed By Parvati Markus HarperOne 2015; 378 pp., $27.99 (paper) In 1967, Baba Ram Dass— the former Harvard psy- chologist Richard Alpert— left India with stories that would change the lives of a generation of spiritual seek- ers. In his famed book, Be Here Now, he described his encounters with a guru named Karoli Baba and his simple yet profound teachings: love everyone, feed everyone, and remem- ber God. In Love Everyone, Parvati Marku has gathered first- person stories from those who followed Ram Dass to India to study with Karoli Baba. Celebrating the still-resounding effects of the teacher’s influence on the yoga, meditation, and mindful- ness cultures that are now fixtures in the West, Love Everyone illustrates how the actions of the inspired decades ago came to shape our consciousness today.
