AbstractSumi Loundon’s Blue Jean Buddha was hailed by the New York Times Review of Books as "a bellwether anthology"— mapping the spiritual trails followed by a generation of American Buddhist youths. The Buddha’s Apprentices examines that territory in fuller detail, telling twenty-six more stories of this powerful spiritual path, including the stories of many teenagers. The book shows us the challenges that spiritually hungry young adults of today might face, with a focus on the identity issues around personality, profession, and lifestyle that are so typical. Also included are several affirming essays from prominent older Buddhists, recalling their first encounters with Buddhism. The Buddha’s Apprentices inspires, examining the tectonic shifts that young , spiritually-inclined people undergo as they leave home, search for partners, consider commitment and marriage, and build their lives. Furthermore, they tell of how Buddhism changes and enhances their abilities to face life’s difficulties.
