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.
Koans, Creativity and Consciousness

(4.00 from 1 review)
What is most important, but invariably overlooked, is not what I am conscious of, but that I am conscious. The only way this can be verified or even considered is by “1st person” enquiry. A way by which this can be established is by koan practice. I explore ways to allay scientific suspicion towards subjective accounts, and show how koan study is used as first person scientific inquiry.

Price: Free! Words: 2,360. Language: English. Published: August 2, 2010. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion and Spirituality » Religion & Science, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Religious philosophy
Religion is in no position to question the results of scientific inquiry unless it obtains contrary results using scientific methodology---and looks foolish when it tries. And scientists look foolish when they make assertions about religious experiences and beliefs. Science by definition cannot study, and therefore cannot comment on questions of reality beyond what is available to the senses.
