A Budhist Vision of the Sublime

by Stephen Batchelor

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/07/2001

  $24.99
"A Buddhist scholar and former monk, Stephen Batchelor is well known to American readers as the author of the bestselling Buddhism Without Beliefs. Now comes Verses from the Center, his vision of the poetic legacy of Nagarjuna, a visionary monk who lived in India in the second century and who is, Batchelor writes, 'arguably the most important figure in Buddhism after the Buddha himself.' . . . In addition to providing useful guidance to the key philosophical concepts, Batchelor's introduction also delves into the colorful strata of myth and legend surrounding the man and his work, and traces the historical traditions of centrist thought all the way from Nagarjuna's Chinese contemporary Lao Tzu to the English Romantic poet John Keats . . . This is a book about wisdom, not understanding; it invites us to acknowledge paradox with equanimity, and to dwell without question among the questions that is poses."
