On the other hand, challenges to the practitioner have remained fundamentally the same for thousands of years. The obstacles and antidotes described by the Buddha are not out of date. Thus a description of traveling the way - of coming to terms with specific obstacles, of applying or improvising antidotes - is always valuable. That Mugan Sozan Peter Schellin writes so clearly and sympathetically of his path and those along it, makes this book worth reading. That he also shows how a sense of humor bridges the small selfish life, with the big, compassionate, open way, makes the reading a delight.
