Having long been interested in the Tao and, more recently, it's
Having long been interested in the Tao and, more recently, it's influence on Chinese Buddhism, I thought this book would be informative. I was mistaken; the author only mentions "the Way " only a couple of times throughout the book. Of course, I could be wrong. Smith uses so many Buddhist terms and references that I often without ever explaining or defining them that I often had no idea what he was talking about. How to interpret a statement like this: "The time that Avalokitesavara Bodhisattya practices profound prajna paramita is the total emptiness of the five skandhas, whole body seeing by illumined vision." I'm not really saying this is a bad book, but it's definitely not for the newcomer to Buddhism. For those who are into Buddhism, though, it seems to offer help & encouragement.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
