About this product
- DescriptionThis well-presented anthology of Chinese wisdom and spiritual philosophies will have a ready-made market with the current massive interest in China. It has a carefully selected introduction to the great traditions of Confucianism, Taoism, Zen, Chinese Buddhism and Chinese poetry. The prose and poetry are of the highest literary quality and represent the whole spectrum of Chinese thought from the urbane, practical, social and political to the sublimely abstract, mystical and enigmatic.

He is the author of Watkins Dictionary of Religions and Secular Faiths, The Mayan Prophecies for 2012 and two books in the Sacred Texts Series: Celtic Wisdom and Buddhist Wisdom.
