2009 BEST OF SILICON VALLEY Reader Survey Winner - First Place

Best Place to Contemplate Nonduality

Buddhism exploded in popularity in America in the 1960s, led by, among others, the Beatnik poet/merchant seaman Gary Snyder, the Zen philosopher Alan Watts and other Californians. Eastern thought has long since infiltrated the nation, but Mountain View's East West Books remains one of the original strongholds. In addition to stacks of tracts on spirituality and growth, this bookstore features an enormous assortment of gifts that can't be found anywhere else. (EJ)
