Sinopse

Western Lights is a collection of essays from the viewpoint of a Western Buddhist teacher. It speaks about Eastern concepts like karma, hope, attachment, and emptiness from a personal perspective and in terms familiar to Americans. They're grounded in subject matter familiar to Americans like politics, science, psychology, heaven, and nature. I hope to help the reader find a personal connection to this ancient tradition and discover what it has to say about the challenges of contemporary life. Buddhism is an ancient eastern tradition steeped in the culture of India, China, Tibet, Thailand, Korea, and Japan. It's still acquiring its form and voice in the west. For Americans to benefit from its wisdom, it needs to find a place in our hearts and minds.   "Personal experience has proven that my body has to do nothing short of screaming to get my attention. In my mid-thirties I was working sixty plus hours per week. I loved the opportunity, I wanted the money, but then came the back spasms.... And that was the alarm that I needed. The lightening had struck. It was time for change." Andrew Furst "Western Lights"
