Silver Sky Publishing Releases Buddhist Golf Book Changing the Way Golfers Think About the Game

All golfers know the idea of suffering when it comes to their golf game. The newly released 2nd edition of Buddha Plays 18 by Edward Sarkis Balian is an informative and entertaining book that combines the art and science of good golf techniques with the principles of Buddhist Philosophy.

Encinitas, CA, October 21, 2011 --( This golf book is unique because Buddha, the Great Master himself actually plays an 18-hole golf course while the book’s author (serving as his caddy), documents a shot-by-shot account in a fun, yet informative and instructional format. Throughout the book, readers will be gradually introduced to great golf lessons, most all of which are derived from the basics of Buddhist philosophy. Buddha presents an extremely insightful approach as he plays the Enlightenment Country Club course and entertains readers with humor, kindness, logic, love, proper golf techniques, and above all, wisdom.

“Two little words comprise the load-bearing pillars of this book: Suffering and Golf. Talk about a hand-in-glove paradoxical relationship,” says Ed Balian, author of Buddha Plays 18. “I wrote this book influenced by Buddha’s teachings because for me personally, when I applied awareness and focus to my golf game, I was astounded by the results. With Buddha Plays 18, I can share my scorecard success with others who want to improve their golf game.”

What golfers are saying about Buddha Plays 18:

“After years of golf study, the ‘Orange Stake Visualization’ that is taught in Buddha Plays 18 is the first swing thought I ever have learned that actually worked for more than two days in a row. I can’t wait to try the rest of the techniques presented. I’m sold.” - A. Ager of San Diego, California

“I am really impressed with Buddha Plays 18. This book discusses the essence of Buddhist philosophy better than any other book I’ve ever read on the subject. And the humor makes me laugh out loud. This book is a pure winner.” - Dr. R. Lake of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California
