Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Grouped into four parts--``The World and Its Interpretation,'' ``The Inward Path,'' ``Art as Creative Meditation,'' and ``The Meeting of East and West``--these essays by a Westerner who became a Tibetan monk and Buddhist scholar combine thought with feeling, insight with wide-ranging compassion. An introductory essay provides background about the Buddha and Buddhism so that the 19 subsequent essays are accessible and convey profound thought in clear language with analogies helpful to Westerners. Govinda's most exciting essays deal with consciousness and transcendence as echoed in other religions and in Teilhard de Chardin's ideas of a conscious cosmos. Recommended for large public, academic, and seminary libraries.
