Appallingly simplistic

The buddha's enlightenment and teaching is reduced to a simple logical tautology. After an introduction of blarney about all the textual research he claims to have done, the author arbitrarily chooses the most simplistic interpretation of the buddha's teachings and dismisses all other sources as misinterpretation.

An eye-opener!

The most striking bit of information I got out of this excellent book is about the conversation between SiddhArtha and one of his students. The student asks if Gautama is a god, to which of course he replies in the negative. "Then what are you?" his student asks - "Awake!" Gautama replies. Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism are philosophical systems that were never intended to be religions. As a devout Christian, I am quite comfortable reading books like this one with that fact in mind. GOD didn't give wisdom only to the West - there is much wisdom in the East as well. The reader must keep in mind that this is human wisdom.
