“if you are a poet, you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper. without a cloud there will be no rain, without rain the trees can not grow; and without trees we cannot make paper… for the book you read”
—-a Buddhist saying
I like it because of its cover, and the beautiful illustrations and photography inside.
But I also like it because it captures the essence of Buddhism without getting too academic and scholarly, and without getting too cryptic as other books on Buddhism tend to do.
It’s simple, yet elegantly presented, and very well organized. An easy read.
