slant practise amidst copious self help
on 25 February 2015
An otherwise good book ruined by the constant - and I do mean constant - use of the word 'seeing' in italics. The author uses the word as a stump to explain what understanding or revelation come to mean in religious circles. Though he is at pain to differentiate how Buddhism is a path and not a belief( which is a nice change) often the book takes on a nihilistic tone rather than a practical one. This is a book about conceptions, not Buddhist practice and for all the authors remonstrations about not following set patterns or moral absolutes - everyone had to start somewhere. This may confuse as much as enlighten, though it will make you feel good about yourself.
