Gary Snyder Points to the Ancient and Modern and Future Paths of the Buddha Way


For me the most effective way of being in the world is to move in the direction of the stream of the Dharma.

Meditation, devotion, Dharma studies, cause-and-effect studies, chopping wood and carrying water, and more meditation yet are the ancient and modern and future paths of entrance into the timeless truths of Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.
