... remembering <cdb>'s kind invitation to drop by and update, here I am again. It seems the 1st edition of my book's now a free download, and the 2nd edition's a scan at Books.google < http://bit.ly/11Uqae >. Such came to pass since I've thoroughly revised plus updated the book for a third edition (out now). Not that Buddhism's changed, but, for one thing, I' had an opportunity to teach it for three semesters, at Stanford continuing studies; always a great way to learn more: teach! And not that our current times see more suffering, or are more uncertain, than ever before, but perhaps more people might be more aware, of suffering, and uncertainty. --And then there's all the amazing recent breakthroughs in the cognitive sciences; Slow Food; photography (which I'd left out), etc. As I'm beating the bushes, for my new edition, here's a link to a recent talk I gave at Book Passage, in Marin County < http://bit.ly/VLqE0 >, called "Free Nirvana!," which I hope brings a smile. (I was there 1 week after Jaimal Yogi spoke about his "Saltwater Buddha," a tough act to follow! -- his talk also archived at Fora.tv ) This includes Q&A, altho' Wellites are always welcome to post questions, comments, or criticism here, and I'll be more than glad to continue the thread.
