Nikko Odiseos, president of Shambhala Publications, posted this lovely endorsement on Facebook yesterday. I’m grateful for his support, both as a friend and as my publisher.
A truly wonderful and important book by Andy Karr is available as of today. Foreword by Matthieu Ricard Into the Mirror: A Buddhist Journey through Mind, Matter, and the Nature of Reality - http://shmb.la/into-mirror
For my non-Buddhist friends, who this it is very much for: It is a journey into how our minds work that takes you through various views of philosophy (don't worry, you do not need to be a philosopher) and how so much of our experience is the result of our own projections.
For my Buddhist friends, who this is very much for: This is a gentle entrée into the views of Yogacara and Madhyamaka, challenging for many, but here laid out in an extremely clear and accessible presentation.
For both audiences, this is really just a way of seeing clearly, in the profoundest of ways.
I hope others enjoy it as much as I have. I read it while taking a multi-day walk on the Cornish coast last month. At the end of the walk I was talking to an older gentleman waiting on the train platform. He shared he was just getting into Insight meditation. I gave him my copy and a few days ago he wrote back effusively about the book.
