From your grandfather to your granddaughter, this book proves that neither of those two people exists in the way you really think they do. And in fact, though the old man and the little girl are different on the outside, they share an astonishing wealth of similarities which ultimately makes them identical. How, you ask? Reading this book will change the way you* see(s) them, and in the meantime the difference between you and everything else will dissolve anyway.

This is my best find of the year. I read the author's name on a list of titles some bookstore guy rebelliously carried in his store.

I think the author is German, but has transcended such imposed titles to become a Lama. The German philosopher in him comes out in his love of methodical analogies and quoting Rilke with delightful adroitness. He destroys logic with his logic, convinces you that your body is actually in the past right now, and says a lot of things about reality and the senses with a shimmery adoration of them that calls Rilke to mind.

Mainly this book is good for implying that creativity is the foundation of religions, and asserting that science is not opposed to religion, "so why don't you people leave that alone!" I can't remember who said that. Probably Maury Povich. It is the ultimate survey course in "Buddhist perspective." I can also tell from his analogies how Buddhists feel about painters, and orchestras, and how the body takes nutrition from food and then makes other products--and how those products are viewed by Buddhists... but whether humorous or not he declines to mention.

It is a compacting read, one which crunches up lead and fiber and golden hillocks into a German lifetime that fits inside a cereal box, easily fits at that.

Read this book or the whole canon of buddhist books. Why? Because nirwana is a complete higher state of mind as our rational-emotional state of mind, even above the keen scientific mind. It's above the Ego etc. and the mind will automaticly include charity and ethics.
