This book isn't written by an academic but by the abbott of a working Buddhist monastery.
Daishin Morgan is a superbly gifted writer. But not only that, he's a profoundly intelligent, economical, dryly witty and extremely 'human' speaker and teacher. (Check out his talks on Throstle Hole Abbey's homepage. They are wonderful).
My only regret is that I never went up to Throstle Hole to hear him talk in person while he was there. I know that he has taken a long but temporary leave from the abbey and has expressed his intention to return. Let's hope he does. But if he doesn't, let's hope he continues teaching and writing in some capacity. Great teachers are rare and it would be a crying shame if we were all to be deprived of this brilliant yet modest one.
Along with Steve Hagen's Buddhism Plain and Simple, I would rate this as a must for any aspiring practitioner.
This volume is by Rev. Master Daishin Morgan, Abbot of Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey (in Northumberland, UK) and Dharma heir of the late Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett, founder of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives. Also by Rev. Master Daishin is Buddha Recognizes Buddha, a more advanced work looking at living within the ever-present reality of enlightenment.
