Penguin presents the audiobook edition of A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind by Shoukei Matsumoto, read by Adam Sims. 

We remove dust to sweep away our worldly desires. We scrub dirt to free ourselves of attachments. We live simply and take time to contemplate the self, mindfully living each moment. It’s not just monks who need to live this way. Everyone in today’s busy world needs it. 

The Zen sect of Buddhism is renowned for the cleanliness of its monks, but cleaning is greatly valued in Japanese Buddhism in general as a way to cultivate the mind. In this audiobook, I introduce everyday cleaning methods typically employed in temples while sharing what it’s like to be a monk in training. 

This book will improve the condition of not just your own mind but also the people around you. I hope listeners will discover that cleanliness is an opportunity to contemplate oneself.
