Longing for Certainty : Reflections on the Buddhist Life
In the same lyrical voice that met with such acclaim in Landscapes of Wonder, Bhikkhu Nyanasobhanoa invites us to look upon the natural world with new eyes and to find the truths of the Buddha's teachings in our immediate experience. Attentive to the subtle power of language, Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano choose his words in these essays with such artistry and care that Longing for Certainty resounds with sparkling, fluid clarity. Referred to as "American Buddhism's Thoreau," Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano's ability to inspire his readers to discover the wonders of nature and the spiritual insights that they arouse is unsurpassed among modern Buddhist writers. Fans of Landscapes of Wonder will find that Longing for Certainty moves into even deeper fields of reflection.
