Ramesh Balsekar, author of Consciousness Speaks
One day a friend handed me a book by Wei Wu Wei and asked me if I knew anything about it. He said he didn’t understand it and wondered if I would read it to see what it was all about. I read the book that night from cover to cover. Two things stand out. First, I didn’t have a clue what the book was about and second, I knew in my bones that I had been handed a gift. I have since read all of Wei Wu Wei’s books, and I love them all like children. Each is an exquisite gem.
from the foreword by Dr. Gregory Tucker
Wei Wu Wei goes right for the root. He takes away everything, and leaves nothing. Then he takes that away.
Joan Tollifson, author of Bare-Bones Meditation
The author of this remarkable collection of aphorisms and dialogues stretches the mind of the reader till it begins to snap and he is ready to join Wei Wu Wei in his crusade “to attend our own funeral.
The contents of this book are perhaps as enigmatic as the title. They consist of short dialogues and aphoristic meditations which are by no means easy reading; but which nevertheless deserve careful study. Perhaps the book should be more often on the knee than in the hand.
