Product description

Review

First written in the mid-twentieth century by the anonymous Buddhist scholar Wei Wu Wei, Ask The Awakened: The Negative Way is a unique spiritual reinterpretation of ancient texts, incorporating Zen Buddhism, Taoism, and the teachings of Ramana Maharshi among other sources into a unique, powerful testimony that forces careful self-examination on the reader's part. Enthusiastically recommended reading for students of Buddhism, Taoism, and Eastern Spirituality, Ask The Awakened is a profound and deeply moving work of true insight such as "We do not possess an 'ego.' We are possessed by the idea of one." Midwest Book Review; April 1, 2002"

I feel the best contribution I could make on the occasion of this very welcome reprint of Ask the Awakened is to help new Wei Wu Wei readers with some tips that, from my experience, may be helpful on how to approach this book and find the wonderful treasure that awaits them. Somewhat like a mythological elfin city, it may at first look rather unlikely from the outside, but once you have entered you realize you are in a wondrous place. Wei Wu Wei was, along with Douglas Harding, Robert Linssen, Paul Reps and a few others, a trailblazer when it comes to creating a wholly Western approach to this ancient insight unencumbered with unnecessary cultural artifices.--Galen Sharp "Diplo: Towards more inclusive and effective diplomacy "
