As a combat veteran and a PTSD sufferer I inadvertently turned toward meditation as a treatment when I found a sleep self-hypnosis app that actually started making me feel better. From there I kept exploring, baffled that no one had ever tried to express how important it is to just be aware of what is going on around you. I have a bookshelf full of books trying to ease my existential dread... books on quantum mechanics, atheism, string theory, philosophy, comparative religion, you name it. I've downloaded every meditation app I could find, and through some exploration found that Buddhist chanting was better than any binaural beats, guided meditation, or self-hypnosis app I had tried. I had no idea what they were chanting about, but I'm a musician and I fully believe that music conveys emotion and mental state in a medium more pure than words alone, and it didn't matter to me what the words were. I could feel what they were conveying and it felt like a power wash for the soul. From there, despite vowing to never trust organized religion again, I started looking into Buddhism. Being a skeptic, I always have trusted the crazies, because I at least knew they were being honest with themselves. Nobody wants to think of themselves as crazy, not for real. So when I read about this crazy Buddhist saint Drukpa Kunley I was hooked. This guy is so far removed from the Western concept of a Saint that it blew my mind. He also didn't trust organized religion. Not only did he not trust organized religion, he made a conscious effort to metaphorically poke organized religion in the eye with a stick at every opportunity. As a recovering Catholic, that sounded a lot like the rebel Jesus to me.Read more ›

If I've bought one book on Buddhism, I've bought fifty.

On a whim I bought this one, not really expecting much because the cover made me think I was probably going to be getting some sort of hipster smart ass take on how to become enlightened in 15 days or less.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

I am already starting to re-read "Crazy Wisdom" because in my opinion it is one of the most sensible hard hitting takes on the philosophy of Buddhism that I've ever come across. Yes, it has it share of puns and quips but the underlying logic of Mr. Nisker's take on our place in the cosmic reality is unassailable. It's certainly unsettling to come to grips with the fact that our place in this world is not on top of the evolutionary heap with a license to take what we want.

Mankind is only a tiny drop in ocean of existence and Wes Nisker's wonderful book makes that point very powerfully and tells us Buddhism helps immensely with this reality.

I ownly with his publisher had better taste in designing his cover.

CW Saves the World Again is fabulous. Wisdom, wit, deep ecological truths, and a cosmic vision that puts your problems and life into perspective. Funny, deep and easy to read...just the book for a gift or a dharmic cosmic visionary pick me up.

This book brings together an array of topics - from evolution to astrophysics to religion and spirituality to meditation practice to environmentalism. And it manages to do it in a way that seems perfectly simple and sensical. I found Mr. Nisker's writing so clean and clear, so human and funny, and so smart. As a psychologist, author, meditator and just as a person, I've thought about all of these topics quite a bit. But he managed to bring freshness and insight to them so gracefully. This book stands out to me from other really good books as one I'll not only go back to again and again, but one I'll buy for my friends. I'll tell them - this clarified my thinking AND it was fun.
