Well my copy of Foundations of Buddhism arrived today containing the pen and highlighting I knew it would. The ad said it was in "great shape!" with no mention of markings. No more used books for me!
If you ordered via ABE can complain, but do make sure you give the bookseller a very poor rating, but at least you did not pay $50.00 for it..
I sent the seller an email but haven't heard anything back yet. Doubt I will. You are right though, I got an excellent book for ten bucks so im grateful.
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah
