Apparently, by Shambhala’s mysterious standards, last months contest went well, so they’ve arranged for another one. I don’t think we should get used to this, but let’s enjoy the privilege while we can.
I had actually never read the book, so Shambhala made sure I got a copy. I wonder if I’ll ever get used to that privilege?
Anyhow, it’s a classic and it’s probably true, as said in one of the introductions, that the hundreds of amazon reviews are a better testimony than anything I could say. However, I will try when I’ve finished reading it.
Before I do so however, let’s get to the give away. I have several questions for you all. You have to answer the first one, for obvious reasons, and at least one other.
- do you want to get a gift copy of zen mind beginners mind?
- if you’ve read the book, what’s your favorite quote ?
- what do you think is the relationship between zen and emotion?
- if you haven’t read the book, why do you want to?
One condition to the give away I did not mention last time: you have to answer on my blog, not through email. While I will occasionally go to the trouble of posting comments made through email on the blog, it does create extra work for me, which I don’t appreciate and will certainly not be rewarding with the gift of a free book. I do have more to do than I have time for.
Like last time, you don’t need to give me your address. Just leave a valid email address as you fill in the comment form. I will send that email address to the Shambhala people and they’ll take it from there.
