For those with a sense of humor 7 July 2014
By David D Swaintek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book changed my mind about religion. When I saw another culture who was able to see the humor and the craziness in whatever you want to call God or the universe it made me interested in learning more, and I really like a lot of buddhist philosophy. Worth a read if the only thing you've ever experienced from organized religion was forced obedience to a self-interested bureaucracy.
A Great Book About a Very Different Kind of Saint 19 April 2015
By Adam Trombly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of Keith's earlier translations and it is really good. It is about Drugpa Kunley who, like most true Buddhist Adepts, was very unpopular with the Buddhist Clergy. He was indeed a wild man with miraculous powers. Drugpa Kunley was a sexually precocious tantric master who regularly offended those who donned the robes but failed to wake up. Even so, he is the Patron Saint of Bhutan, which is the only country on Earth which measures success in terms of Gross National Happiness.
