Product Description

Poet and Zen Priest Tai Sheridan's 'Buddha in Blue Jeans' is an extremely short, simple, and straight forward universal guide to the practice of sitting quietly and being yourself, which is the same as being Buddha. Sitting quietly can teach many ways to accept life, meet pain, age gracefully, and die without regret. The book encourages sitting quietly every day.

Topics include: Sit Quietly; Care For Your Body; Accept Your Feelings; Give Thoughts Room; Pain is Natural; Be Who You Are; Live Each Moment Well; Love Indiscriminately; Listen to Others; Be Surprised; Wonder; Live gratefully; Do No Harm; Benefit life; A Wish for The World. The book is for people of any faith, religion, race, nationality, gender, relationship status, capacity, or meditation background.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet.. 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's always so may books to read that a short one is welcomed...

This is a reminder to anyone who has touched on meditation in the past, to get back to it.

I loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buddha in Blue Jeans 18 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A free book, and very short, I read the whole thing in half an hour, taking a few moments to think about a few points.

Now I feel relaxed and quietly optimistic. I feel I want to do something useful with the next half hour of my life. Normally, when I consider the chores I have to do, my first response is a sigh, "later...".

That alone has to be worth the investment of a short time and no money. Now I think I'll go and fill the dishwasher, while I'm still in the mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sights and sounds of silence. 20 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sit back, relax and be amazed: at how short the book is, at how much wisdom it contains, at how simple the language, at the punch it packs. Only thing I did not like is the title. The reference to blue jeans limits its scope - you could read this in a business suit or your birthday suit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 7 Jun 2013
By Katy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very short and very quick little read. Just a few lovely words that can do no harm but may just do you good and bring a smile to your face and maybe more.
It's a sort of 'you have nothing to lose' little read

5.0 out of 5 stars As simple as it gets 6 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like this book. I have read another book (Steve Hagen's Buddhism plain and simple) but I got bogged down quite early on. This just tells you how to start leading a better life so you can crack on with it without feeling "Hang on I didn't understand that bit".

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and simple calming read 22 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone with a busy life its often hard to find the time to relax. It's now more accepted to sit staring at a screen than it is to take 10 mins or so to relax and de-clutter our minds. This short piece (not really a book) perfectly calms the mind and gives guidance on routinely doing so. It is something I will read again and again until it is 2nd nature.
