The Karma of Mao is a devastating critique of socialism and Marxism through the eyes of a longtime Buddhist, and award-winning author.

Western notions of happiness tend to be selfish, contingent and shallow, and this book is about why I have rejected such notions as well as the commonly accepted strategies to achieve happiness.

Zitate aus dem Buddhismus und Ihre Auslegungen Hier versucht der Autor etwas Licht in die Thesen Buddhas zu bringen, mit seiner unmaßgeblichen Meinung analysiert er die Thesen mit subjektiver Auslegung.

So I told myself the Dhammapada is one of the oldest books of Buddhist thought. I should read it. What I wanted was a nice simple readable version that I could dip into. I discovered that most translations are completely unreadable, some more than others. A few modern versions attempt to clarify the text. I may be the first person to notice the problem who was a writer and not a translator.
