Description About the author Contents
 
This is the first book to offer Buddhist meditators a comprehensive and sympathetic examination of the differences between Asian and Western cultural and spiritual values. Harvey B. Aronson presents a constructive and practical assessment of common conflicts experiences by Westerners who look to Eastern spiritual traditions for guidance and support and find themselves confused or disappointed. Issues addressed include:

* Our cultural belief that anger should not be suppressed versus the Buddhist teaching to counter anger and hatred
* Our Psychotherapists' advice that attachment is the basis for healthy personal development and supportive relationships versus the Buddhist condemnation of attachments as the source of suffering
* Our culture's emphasis on individuality versus the Asian emphasis on interdependence and fulfillment of duties, and the Buddhist teachings on no-self, or egolessness
