Book Reviews

Madhuri’s review of Bhante Walpola Piyananda’s book. “An enormously genial Buddhist rant… peppered with anecdotes from the author’s life as a monk, teacher, Abbott, chaplain, and Chief Sangha Nayaka Thera of the USA.”

Sudhir reviews Pratibha Castle’s poetry book, launched today, 9 November 2023. “These poems resonate because they describe life as it is. They give a sense of how the eternal can slip into the world of time, of how, if one looks even in the midst of the mundane, there is magic.”

Life in the Amsterdam Red Light District, told by “a young British woman, a newly-qualified nursery nurse who was lured by an advertisement to work in a crèche.” The reflective review by Madhuri concludes with “If Yin was honoured, meditation would become possible for humans.”
