“To most of us there have come exceptional, unworldly moments, like
unsuspected deeps in a stream, when we fell through appearances—fell
through ourselves—into an intuition of majesty and wonder.”
—Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano in Landscapes of Wonder
Landscapes of Wonder deftly
transports the spirit of Buddhist contemplation off the cushion and
into the natural world. With a lyricism and spiritual immediacy
reminiscent of Thoreau and Emerson, in eighteen meditational essays
Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano considers Buddhist themes through the prism of
nature. The reflections captured in these satisfying literary
explorations will appeal to all who appreciate contemplation of the
natural world and our place in it.
