Was slightly disappointed not to get more from the philosopher in terms of opinion. Very interesting introduction to Buddhism though. Interesting questions raised about the problems of the self, the importance of meditation and the transfer of energy. It shows the optimism of Buddhism for our ability to transform ourselves in one lifetime despite the reincarnation theory.
