About this title


Profoundly knowledgeable and articulate, and equally at home with science, philosophy, myth, art, and poetry, Urgyen Sangharakshita uses every inner avenue to communicate the timeless Dharma to the Western mind. Engaging both the intellect and the heart countless times in a single chapter, the author draws remarkably apt examples from sources as diverse as Orwell, Aeschylus, and Jane Austen. This distilled volume is a primer to the breadth and depth of Buddhist thought and practice.


"When Sangharakshita returned to the West in 1964 he was equipped with a grasp of and direct experience of Buddhist teaching and practice that was unparalleled in his time, indeed, in the breadth and scope it very probably remains unique."--Nagabodhi, founding chairman of Windhorse Publications

"His contribution to the transmission of the Dharma form East to West has been immense."--Professor Damien Keown, University of London.

"I have always looked to Sangharakshita's books for inspiration and ideas on how to better translate the principles and practices of Buddhism for Western audiences and practitioners today."--Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within

"Sangharakshita offers a rare combination of historical knowledge, cross-cultural awareness, and spiritual insight."--Professor Alan Sponberg, University of Montana
