            By dipping into this little book of simple Zen Buddhist sayings, you can calm your anxiety and return serenity to your soul. Are you feeling stress and anxiety from the demands of daily life? Do you feel overwhelmed by your to-do list and the constant deluge of information from a...ll quarters? Are you unhappy with your life and envious of those around you? At times like these it's important to step back and take a breath. Zen meditation may conjure up images of sitting in silence for long hours, but according to Buddhist monk and author Shinsuke Hosokawa, Zen can be summed up as the knowledge needed for a person to live life with a positive outlook. With this in mind, he has produced this charmingly illustrated volume of sayings to introduce you to the world of Zen, which you can dip into when feeling stressed. The sayings include: Pay attention to what is right in front of your eyes Nothing happens by chance. Every encounter has its meaning Be careful not to confuse the means and the purpose Keep flowing just like water Nothing will control you Even a bad day is a good day Check the ground beneath your feet when you're in trouble You'll never walk alone These 52 mindful sayings mirror the 52 steps that are traditionally taken to achieve enlightenment, and also the 52 weeks of the year-passing through the seasons, both of the natural world and of our lives. Each saying has an illustration and a simple, meditative reflection to help you look into your own heart, accept your current state of being, reduce anxiety and find calmness. Whatever the time of year, whatever your time of life, by browsing the pages of this books you are sure to quickly find a piece of universal wisdom that will resonate with your soul.

            Hardly a day goes by without mention of Islam. And yet, for most people, and in much of the world, Islam remains a little-known religion. Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women's rights or slavery, Muslims are today expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam i...s - or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam: precisely the question this short and extremely accessible book sets out to answer. In simple, direct language it will introduce readers to Islam, to its spirituality, its principles, its rituals, its diversity and its evolution.
