Finding Freedom

How Death Row Broke and Opened My Heart



A remarkable story of personal transformation and spiritual awakening from a Buddhist man on death row.

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.
