Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This is the book that introduced Jack Kerouac to Buddhism. Originally published in 1932 and then republished in its present, enlarged form in 1938, this edition contains a fine new introduction by Robert Aitken and covers a wide selection of readings from Pali, Sanskrit, Chinese, Tibetan, and modern sources intended to provide the reader with a foundation in classical Buddhist thought. Lacks an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Excellent book. Just like other books, this book is meant for people to relate their problems and get involved in it (for instance, the Lord of the Rings). Unlike as the title states, it is not a 'holly book.' Nor is is meant for people to turn to another belief. Buddhism is purely a way of life, not a belief. It doesn't preach to believe in one entity, nor does it ask to read only one book. There was no such thing as 'you' or 'me'; nor was there such thing as religion in Buddhism until others came along and started nosing in and started spreading hate. Overall, a great book if you are willing to read it. Remember, it is purely a book like any other book that you might read. Nothing special here. Don't let people who can't spell or write properly stop you from reading it.
