The Buddha in Hell? Gossipy monks? A Karmic superhero? A lady reborn as a fly with strange likings? A Tibetan lake filled with vanishing gold? A kin who barks like a houn? The Buddha's enlightening advice for cleaning sandals? Merit from a pig's muddy tail?

Who among us doesn't need some laughing gas for our karma-laden mind-stream, as we journey inexorably toward The Great Whatever? Magically illustrated by Charles A. Filius, the limericks in this book poke fun at a superficial understanding of Buddhism while advocating basic Buddhist beliefs. Adults and children alike will enjoy this meaningful and humorous book.
