How Death Row Broke and Opened My HeartBook - 2020
"There are many forms of liberation-some that exist at the mercy of circumstance and others that can never be taken away. In this collection of stories, essays, poems, and letters from death-row inmate Jarvis Jay Masters, he explores the meaning of true freedom on his road to inner peace through Buddhist practice. He reveals the life of a young man surrounded by violence, his entanglement in the criminal justice system, and-following an encounter with Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche-an unfolding commitment to nonviolence and peacemaking. At turns joyful, heartbreaking, frightening, and soaring with profound insight, Masters's story offers a vision of hope and the possibility of freedom in even the darkest of times"-- Provided by publisher.
