About Romancing the Buddha - The Book

Michael Lisagor shares warm and witty stories and advice on applying the principles of Nichiren Buddhism in daily life. This third edition contains several new chapters, additional illustrations and photos, an overview of Nichiren Buddhism, a glossary of Buddhist terms and a reader's guide. Mike reveals how Buddhism - which offers teachings of personal and social transformation - helped him deal with his wife's serious illness, his own depression and the death of a close friend. Here too is hard-won wisdom on relationships, with powerful insights on marriage and parenting. Great for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.

"Seamlessly weaving familiar bumps in the marital road -- child rearing, the work world -- with uphill climbs --
his depressions, her multiple sclerosis -- demystified what may still seem to some like an exotic practice."
- Dee Axelrod, Bainbridge Island Review

"A wise and moving account of the author's adventuresome journey toward spiritual enlightenment
and social awareness. It helps us understand the intimate connection between resolving conflicts in one's
personal life and working effectively for peace on a global scale."
- Richard E. Rubenstein, Ph.D., author When Jesus Became God and Aristole's Children

I loved Mike's one-man show! A lot of it deeply resonates with me and some of my experiences.
Mike's  content and soul really comes through -- his spirit leaps from the screen."
- S. Silverman, Washington D.C.
