Excellent, simple meditations to clear the person of self-absorption, and effective when recalled - even in public or mid conversation.

I've read all the sutras in their full English translations in other books with commentary. Tai Sheridan's poetry gets to the heart of their meaning and speaks to intuition and emptiness as only good poetry can in ways that the commentaries don't. The Heart Sutra is a challenge, for example! I have a much better relationship with it now than I ever had thanks to Tai's poetic rendering.

This is a free Kindle ebook at Amazon. Pick it up!

I am enjoying Tai Sheridan's books/poetry. I particularly like his version of the Loving Kindness Sutra.
