Cosimo's Newest Release, One Monk, Many Masters, is Now Available!

We are very excited to present the newest addition to our Cosimo Books imprint One Monk, Many Masters: The Wanderings of a Simple Buddhist Traveler by Paul Breiter!

One Monk, Many Masters is an account of Breiter's life as a monk and his ongoing search for enlightenment after leaving the monastic robes. Breiter's spiritual wanderings weave through the Theravada, Zen, and Tibetan Buddhist traditions under such great teachers as Ajahn Chah, Ajahn Sumedho, Kobun Chino, Lama Gonpo, and the 16th Karmapa. After being out of print for a  number of years, Cosimo Books is proud to make Paul Breiter's biography available again.

Early reviews are in!

"Breiter's knack for unadorned observation takes the reader on a worthwhile trek through modern Buddhism as journeyed by a Western layman turned monk and back again."
—Sakula Mary Reinard, Spiritual Director, Portland Friends of the Dhamma

"Breiter's experience with Buddhist teachers, expressed in this book with honesty and insight, is a pleasure to read."
–Angie (Zuiko Enji) Boissevain
