About Edward Horner
In Pain and Suffering, we explore the relationship between these two afflictions as we look deeply into how our ego drives us ever towards disappointment and regret. However, we don't leave the reader with just an understanding of how we suffer and why we have pain. We take a serious look at how, with diligence and patience, we can apply a specific program of meditation or contemplative practice to escape or at the very least, lessen our suffering.
Pain and Suffering in Buddhism isn't just for Buddhists. It's for anyone who has ever wondered, "Why is this happening to me?"
No human being, animal, plant nor smallest microbe manages to escape death. it's the ultimate end for every now living or that were will live. There is no "cure" and no avoiding it, but from a Buddhist perspective, suffering over this inevitability is something we can reduce and maybe even sidestep.
In Death and dying, Horner gives up hope that we can shake off the fear of death and bring a clear mind to the process.
In Freewheeling, Horner takes his readers for a ride down Memory Lane as he provides them with a thoughtful narrative of some wild bicycle-related adventures he and his friends had, as lads, growing up in Toronto. They get into trouble in the Black Creek, get pinched by a motorcycle cop in High Park, rescue a member of their party from Catfish Pond, buy the Bike-to-End-all-Bikes and more.
Slow paced and introspective, Horner provides us with a series of richly textured tales of his early life growing up in Toronto's, Junction.
