Manly Hall introduces his readers to some of the Buddhist principles that form the foundation to many Japanese gardens. This book is an excellent reference useful to students before or after visiting the famous gardens in the Kyoto-Nara area of Japan. Once again Mr. Hall gently and with sensitivity demonstrates his incredible ability to extract in simple language the essence as well as subtleties of Buddhist thought and dynamics. In this instance using the famous Japanese gardens as his canvass he paints a landscape both pleasing and impelling. On a personal note having studied over one hundred of his works, "Buddhism and Psychotherapy" ranks as one of his most concise and mature labors.
