Albert Einstein supposedly once said that Buddhism has all the markings of a cosmic religion. This engaging little book paints Buddhism as the way of the world to come but yet explains patiently why... More > it is all right to fail at trying to become a Buddhist. With lucid style and characteristic wit, Ms Fields deftly interweaves the past, the present and the future, science and spirituality, the East and the West, earth and space, and prose and poetry to produce a rich tapestry studded not only with gems of stupefying similes and mesmerising metaphors, but also drenched with the distilled wisdom of the ages infused with original inspirational insight. Buddhism is a religion for wealthy intellectuals, according to Fields. But read this beautifully crafted book to find out just who might be one.
