A friend recently gave me this book, and I’m finding some interesting stuff in it.  After looking at the title page, I told her I’m not so sure I’m in favor of immortality, but I try to keep an open mind.

As I mentioned in a post earlier this year, there are a lot of correspondences between Taoism and Zen Buddhism.  In fact, it might even be correct to say that Zen teachings have more in common with Taoism than with mainstream Buddhism.

There was a CD in the back of the book.  Very soothing chants, and they reminded me of something, but I couldn’t figure out what for a while.  Then I got it, I think.  Maybe it’s just me, but this bit in particular reminds me of the song, “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen.”

Always nice to find commonalities in different cultures!  ;)
