    Truth from a new perspective.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    In the case of buddhism, he goes so far as to suggest that the notions of rebirth and karma (the idea that our actions influence the course of future lives) may do more harm than good, and that they should be left behind as relics of another time and culture.

    Although this book contains a few basic meditation exercises, it is not a book about meditation.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    And although it makes reference to the life and teachings of a figure called the buddha, it is, oddly, not a book about buddhism.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I've always been fascinated by buddhism and the idea of centering through meditation, but thought my agnostic/atheistic views rendered things like that silly.
