A fascinating exploration of the question of whether the concept of rebirth can be incorporated into a modern, scientific worldview. The Net of Indra is a unique study that seeks to bridge the gulf between religion and science, pointing to the possibility of a middle way, where science does not have to be rigidly materialistic and reductionistic, and religion can free itself from the bondage of dogma.

About the Author:

Sante Poromaa is a Zen teacher who trained under Philip Kapleau Roshi and his successor, Bodhin Kjolhede Roshi.

Review:

Dean Radin PhD, author of 'The Conscious Universe': Sensei Sante Poromaa's 'The Net of Indra' blew my mind into little pieces, then gently gathered it up again to reveal its true, unbroken nature. A dazzling, kaleidoscopic discussion of mind and meaning, from a clear mind sharpened in the Zen Buddhist tradition. --Quoted on the back cover

B Alan Wallace, author of 'Mind in the Balance: Meditation in Science, Buddhism and Christianity': In this work, distinguished Zen teacher Sante Poromaa presents a well-informed, highly intelligent critique of scientific materialism, particularly with regard to its unquestioned assumptions about the biological nature of all mental processes and consciousness itself. While pointing out the dogmatic nature of many 'scientific' views of consciousness, he presents a cogent account of Buddhist views, showing the supporting evidence that lends itself to further empirical investigation. This is an important work that brings Buddhist views on rebirth into the modern world in a thoroughly non-dogmatic, open-minded fashion, and I recommend it to all who are interested in the nature and potentials of consciousness. --quoted on the back cover
