“Calvin Malone's compelling, beautifully written memoir goes beyond his experiences as someone whose life in prison was transformed by Buddhism. With vivid descriptions of his life and practice behind bars, he show us that anyone, in any circumstances, can make a positive change in his or her own life and in the lives of those around them.”
— Carol Schneck, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI

Description


Calvin Malone has plenty to teach us all about ideas that we rarely associate with the penal system; Dignity. Compassion. Freedom behind bars. He speaks from experience; Malone is nearing the end of a 20-year prison sentence himself.Razor-Wire Dharmais his eloquent, enlightening, and utterly inspiring personal story how he found Buddhism-and real, transformative meaning for his life-despite being in one of the world's harshest environments.Some of his stories are hilarious, some are harrowing, but all express Buddhist wisdom as vividly as any practitioner could hope to do. Malone is living it, and in the unlikeliest of places. For him, the choice of staying true to his principles often requires that he quite literally jeopardize his life, safety, and the few small comforts available to him to try to do what's right.Razor-Wire Dharmamakes it clear that if Calvin can do what's right in jail, he can do it anywhere. What's more, it proves that we can, too
