    Fighting Buddha

    By Jeff Eisenberg

    Martial arts instructor and meditator Jeff Eisenberg shows that Buddhism and Martial Arts can complement each other. Challenging the belief that martial arts are not conducive to a meditative practice, the book shows the difference between violence and the use of force as it relates to the Buddha’s teaching of “cause no harm.”
