More > biography and at the same time it is a fairy story. In actual fact, it all really happened. James is a contemporary artist. His other talent is that he has a rich knowledge of languages— Chinese, both the modern tongue and the classical language, as well as Japanese, both modern and medieval, plus the languages of Western Europe. He made the discovery of the profundity and the philosophy of the Buddha teaching of Nichiren Daishōnin. Over the last thirty years, he has translated Nichiren’s writings. The Buddha teaching of Nichiren is an all-embracing subject, which I have seriously studied in depth, only to find that it is a real treasure. It is capable of bringing about world peace, as well as individual happiness.< Less

‘Nichiren Daishōnin’s aim was to make us understand that the clear light of the Dharma realm of enlightenment is in no way apart from whatever situation we are living at this very... More > moment. The essays, explanations and translations in this book are about the quest for an inner realisation and becoming an undivided self. And they are done in this spirit of bearing the intention of Nichiren in mind, which was to make all people aware that our real identity is life itself, and at the same time we can get on with being the persons we think we are in the business of living out our lives. It is in this light that I have translated a few of his writings, in order to break out of the sectarian limitations of the various schools that propagate something of his teachings. Thus the aim of this book is to make these writings of Nichiren Daishōnin and the essential of his teaching, which is Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō, more accessible and understandable to worldwide readers of modern English.’ Martin Bradley< Less

The Dharma Flower Sutra (Lotus Sutra) Seen through the Oral Transmission of Nichiren Daishōnin, translated and interpreted by Martin Bradley: “What is being attempted here is a close study...

Only at extremely sparse intervals in the course of history have there been a few individuals who have really comprehended what existence is all about. “The message is to devote our lives to and found them on the dimension where existence occurs whose interdependence of cause, concomitancy and effect pervades the entirety of existence and is Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō in Japanese. It is the recitation of the title and subject matter of the Dharma Flower Sutra that makes us realise that the meaning of existence is here and now in each and every moment of our lives and that the white lotus flower-like mechanism is the totality of all the possible reaches of our minds.” Martin Bradley< Less

More > borrica Matilda, por los montes Distercios “de los monasterios” en La Rioja española. Veremos reflejadas las más señaladas de las aventuras de Don Quijote en bien diversa guisa: el molino, el manteo, el barbero y su bacín, el maestro rebuzno, la feroz batalla de las ovejas y hasta la cueva de Montesinos… Además contiene nuevas aventuras originas. Le puse el pseudónimo de Juan Estébanez Maldonado en aras de la verosimilitud de la historia. De lo que se trata en realidad es que este hombre, un tanto trastornado por la monotonía de su vida y ciertos malos hábitos o vicios adquiridos, salga a la búsqueda a sí mismo, si es que esto es posible. El libro es para desternillarse de risa, como lo es El Quijote, y como lo son Huckleberry Finn y La Conjura de los Necios. Kirk W. Wangensteen. Pseudónimo: Juan Estébanez, Maldonado< Less

No tengo palabras para elogiar la gran obra que has escrito... el fin que pretendes de ayudar a ver el problema del ALCOHOLISMO e incluso a estar alerta para no padecerlo... Como Médico... More > conozco el problema y he visto de todo y tratado junto con el Servicio de Psiquiatría todo tipo de patologías de esta especialidad, cotejando casos individuales, etc. He de decirte también que estás documentadísimo y al ser también una persona docta y reflexiva, amén de tu capacidad literaria e inteligencia hacen de tu libro un Tratado que será referente seguro en esta patología. Mi máxima enhorabuena, Kirk. ______________ Además de un intento de compartir búsquedas, recursos, propuestas para mejorar la atención del alcohólico. Más allá de lo literario, es la historia de un proceso personal de recuperación que ha deseado compartir, un redescubrimiento de la vida desde otro lugar, con la sabiduría de los años, de los golpes, desde lo marginal y lo adaptado. En España y EEUU. Gracias, Kirk Sólo quiero ayudar.< Less

...tal y como le fue contada a Harley White. Narra las aventuras y andanzas de una gata del barrio del Albaycín, Granada; una gata callejera en apariencia como tantas otras, dejadas a su... More > suerte para buscarse la vida sola. "A mí me llaman Mama-cat y yo respondo a la llamada, así que supongo que ése es mi nombre, aunque no siempre lo fue. Nací en Andalucía, en Granada, una zona donde hace calor en verano y frío en invierno, y sobreviví gracias a las buenas mañas de mi madre, que nos escondió a la camada en una casa abandonada." Pero Mama-cat sabe muchísimo más que lo que salta a la vista. Erudita y filósofa, nos propociona un recorrido por la cultura felinesca a través de los tiempos, en arte, literatura, citas, etc. y también rinde al lector imágenes suyas, de su entorno, amigos y enemigos, y los variopintos habitantes, turistas y bohemios del barrio. Nos sumerge en un mundo nuevo, el que vive y goza y sufre. Sus vivencias acabarán en sincronía con las de su dueña, la autora indirecta: Harley White.< Less
