COFFEE WITH ... THE BUDDHA
A completely new kind of biography, bringing great men and women to life as never before
Joan Duncan Oliver
So you've always wondered what it would be like to meet the Buddha? Well, now you can – by a miracle of time travel. Listen to him talk about the Four Noble Truths, karma and the path to enlightenment. You'll find that he'll change your life.
'What is it that's reborn? Is there an eternal soul or self
that transmigrates from one lifetime to the next?
Contrary to the Vedas and Upanishads, there's nothing to be reborn.
You have no eternal soul or essential self dragging a suitcase of unresolved karma from lifetime to lifetime. Rather, what makes the trip is a continuity of consciousness at a very subtle level. Every time you generate fresh karma it leaves an energetic 'stamp' on the ever-flowing mind stream.”
