Everyone is busy. So everyone needs little reminders to help remember to slow down, pay attention, and enjoy life. Designed for just this purpose, gathas are short Buddhist poems to recite inwardly throughout the day. Best-selling author Barbara Ann Kipfer has created gathas for waking up, for eating a meal, for driving, for appreciating nature, and more. These lyrical verses transform everyday activities like washing the dishes and taking out the garbage into opportunities to realize the sacredness of the present moment. Gathas help the reader weave a meditative rhythm and sensibility into daily life, no matter how hectic it might be.
