Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Govinda, a German-born Buddhist teacher and scholar, here provides an excellent discussion of the relevance of Buddhism for contemporary Westerners. Not only does he clearly discuss insight, knowledge, morality, the bodhisattva ideal, ritual, initiation, guru- and discipleship, and introspective paths from the Buddhist point of view, he also explains why nonverbal thinking and symbols are so desperately needed as ``a means of looking more deeply into . . . the wonders and profound mysteries that surround us'' and why visualization is such a powerful tool. Both the contemporary seeker and the student of comparative religion will find this book thought-provoking.
