"We are living in remarkable times. A genuine Western Buddhism is now taking birth", writes Joseph Goldstein, one of America's most respected Buddhist teachers. The birth pangs include controversy and conflict - and fear that genuine teachings may vanish as traditions converge in the melting pot of American practice. But Goldstein recognizes a possibility, indeed a great potential, for the essence of Buddhism to survive on Western soil, in Western minds.
His visionary synthesis points a way for Buddhism to grow and flower while remaining rooted in the teachings of the great Asian schools - from India and Burma to Tibet and Japan. Marked by a simplicity derived from the Buddha's own pragmatic response to life, Goldstein distills the essential question that is at the base of all the traditions: What works to free the mind from suffering?
He provides a brief historical overview of early Buddhism and explores the mind-changing reflections that bring us to the Dharma path - the teachings of liberation, free from sectarian attachments. Upon this foundation Goldstein then shows how the great masters from all traditions have pointed to the essence of ultimate freedom.
