The Feeling Buddha: A Buddhist Psychology of Chracter, Adversity, and Passion

Overview

With astonishing simplicity, David Brazier distills the essence of the Buddha's message from "Setting in Motion the Wheel of the Dharma," the talk he gave after he attained enlightenment. Here the Buddha spelled out the path of the Four Noble Truths as the basis of his teachings. In a refreshingly unorthodox approach to what the Buddha was really saying to us across the centuries, Brazier construes the Buddha's meaning in ways that are, in some important respects, very different from standard beliefs.

Overview

With astonishing simplicity, David Brazier distills the essence of the Buddha's message from "Setting in Motion the Wheel of the Dharma," the talk he gave after he attained enlightenment. Here the Buddha spelled out the path of the Four Noble Truths as the basis of his teachings. In a refreshingly unorthodox approach to what the Buddha was really saying to us across the centuries, Brazier construes the Buddha's meaning in ways that are, in some important respects, very different from standard beliefs. The Buddha did not seek enlightenment to escape affliction, Brazier says. Indeed, the Buddha embraced the inevitable suffering of the human condition as the beginning of the path to enlightenment. Nor does Brazier hold with the common idea that Buddhism implies the elimination of feelings. In Brazier's interpretation of what the Buddha taught, feelings are natural, inevitable, and noble. The Feeling Buddha gives easy access to the earliest teachings of India's greatest sage, who emerges here as a very human figure. It also serves as a practical guide for living life fully and deeply today.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Taking as the framework for his discussion the first teaching offered by the Buddha after he attained enlightenment (wherein he revealed the Four Noble Truths and the Eight-Fold Path), Brazier (Zen Therapy, Wiley, 1996) offers a modern perspective on these ideas and notes some useful parallels with psychoanalytic theory and practice. Brazier's reasoned and insightful interpretation of the Buddha's message, as he tells us, is the result of many years of study and reflection, and he takes the reader beyond the surface of these familiar texts. While the approach may not be as revolutionary as Brazier would have us believe, this admirably clear and perceptive book has much to offer, particularly for those with some experience of Buddhist practice. Many libraries might want this to supplement the Dalai Lama's recent The Four Noble Truths (Thorsons, 1998). Recommended for libraries collecting in the flourishing area of contemporary Buddhist thought.--Mark Woodhouse, Elmira Coll. Lib., NY
