From the Author
We live in a time when it can appear that the road to wisdom has been lost and its very existence forgotten. In its place is merely a dead-end street full of stale ideologies. Yet the path that Buddha set forth some two-and-a-half millennia ago is still there for us, even in these modern times, if we care to find it.
This present work is essentially a series of essays on the encounter between Buddhist teachings and the West. It draws from the teachings I have received over the past five decades from His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin, Karma Thinley Rinpoche and various other Tibetan teachers.
