A nice little book with a simple message which, if followed, could help the reader to a more peaceful life.

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

This review is from: Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha (Kindle Edition)
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

This review is from: Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha (Kindle Edition)
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.

This review is from: Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha (Kindle Edition)
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

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

This review is from: Buddha in Blue Jeans: An Extremely Short Zen Guide to Sitting Quietly and Being Buddha (Kindle Edition)
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.

This is a great short book. Written in simple terms how to sir quietly whilst understanding the bhuddist truths. It was a joy to read especially for those people like me have so little time to practicable being quiet and mindful.
