Shelves:
Wonderfully readable book explaining Buddhism and related issues in clear, succinct langauge. I recommend this book as a good overview for anyone seeking a primer on this fascinating philosphy. He maintains that Buddhism is not a religion in the traditional sense of the word but rather a view man in relation to everything else in the universe. As the Beatles suggested, " It's all within yourself." I give this book four stars.

“How long the path may be depends for any man on where he stands today and his speed of travel. These are his past and present choosing, but the beginning of the way is here and now, and karma and rebirth are the means of treading it.” 2 likes
“We will not read of that which hurts our pride or fears or 'feelings'. We forget, or gloss over, or excuse, an experience which injured the tentacles of our personality. We forget the pscyhiatrist's definition of a neurosis as 'refused pain'. In the same way we escape from mental pain. We refuse to believe what we do not like.” 1 likes
