I’m very pleased to tell you all that my book Benefit Beings!: The Buddhist Guide to Professional Chaplaincy is now available! You can purchase a print copy at Amazon.com, and you can also buy an e-book version at Amazon.com’s Kindle Store.
Benefit Beings! was written to help Buddhists engaged in professional chaplaincy work in North America, and those who wish to join their ranks. The book is organized into several chapters, each offering a brief history of a particular chaplaincy (with special attention on relevant events for Buddhists); an explanation of the requirements for service as a professional chaplain in that field (again, with an understanding that the intended reader is a practicing Buddhist); and an examination of the work done by Buddhists in that chaplaincy (including positions held, scholarship produced, and so on).
In other words, if you want to become a career Buddhist chaplain, then this is the book for you!
I also say a bit more in the book trailer, which you can watch below…
