New Richard Gombrich book - What the Buddha Thought

Postby clw_uk » Sun Jun 28, 2009 12:16 am


Just wanted to share this, should be an interesting read when its released

Lost to a world in which I crave no part,
I sit alone and listen to my heart,
Pleased with my little corner of the earth,
Glad that I came--not sorry to depart

Thanks Craig

Gombrich is an interesting scholar. I look forward to the work.
Kind regards

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
