About this title

Synopsis:

Buddhist masters of the past have explained the relationship between theory and the Truth by way of a simple metaphor. The Truth, they say, is like the distant moon. Ideas, theories, and explanations are merely fingers pointing at that faraway goal. They are not, and can never be, the moon itself. So this book is one such finger, a finger pointing at the moon. It can show you the way to the moon, but the moon itself can be touched by you alone...

The Buddhism which emerges from To Meet The Real Dragon is not a Buddhism for gods or supermen. It is a Buddhism for real people: ordinary human beings with ordinary human problems. It is humanistic Zen--Zen for human beings. Here are a few of the topics covered by this very readable book: What is Religion Meeting a True Master Master Dogen Science and Buddhism Idealism and Materialism Gautama Buddha The Four Noble Truths The Transmission of the Truth Cause and Effect Not Doing Wrong Action: The Centre of Buddhism Zazen The Four Philosophies
