We’re very pleased to present this video of Martine Batchelor reading from Chapter 2 of her new book, The Spirit of the Buddha. We will feature this book as a Book Club discussion in February. You can purchase The Spirit of the Buddha here. Formerly a nun in the Korean tradition of Zen Buddhism, Martine is the author of several books and is a frequent contributor to Tricycle. She led a Tricycle Retreat, “Break Your Addictive Patterns,” in the summer of 2010, and lives in France with her husband Stephen.
