Book Review: The Buddha and the Bard

The Buddha and the Bard: Where Shakespeare’s Stage Meets Buddhist Scriptures by Lauren Shufran really brought me back to my undergrad days as an English major when I really fell in love with studying Shakespeare. I really enjoyed this exploration of the teachings of Buddha through the lens of Christian-influenced Shakespearean literature.

If you’re looking for a fresh view of Buddhism or have an affinity for the Bard, you will not be disappointed in this book!
