View 1 comment. Not Kerouac's best but still follows in line with his trail writing and extreme deal.
Not a book i would pick up to learn about buddhism but a book i would pick up to understand the mind and thoughts of Kerouac. Aug 11, Angela rated it liked it Shelves: unfinished , non-fiction. I've never read Kerouac before. I am reading this because I want to understand Buddhism better and it was in the library. Unlike other reviewers, I find this book more of what I was expecting in a "life of Buddha" than I found reading Siddhartha.
It is helping me to better understand traditional Buddhist concepts that I have been trying to grasp. However, I was not expecting to find inherent misogyny. Even that I found understandable in the context of history and the traditional, not western, Bu I've never read Kerouac before.
Even that I found understandable in the context of history and the traditional, not western, Buddhist philosophy. I was still disturbed, being a woman myself. In this view, women are a distraction and an impediment to enlightenment. They use tricks and "magic" to tempt men away from a life seeking nirvana.
The monks were advised to think of what a woman would look like when she is fifty or eighty, when he is tempted to form an attachment to a beautiful woman. It would be extremely insulting if I was not reading it as history. This book helps confirm my major issues with traditional Buddhism.
I don't believe in karma or rebirth. I also don't think nirvana is all it's said to be. It seems to me that the way of the buddhist monk, which purports to be a middle way between extremes of indulgence and asceticism, is still an extremist lifestyle.
Renouncing the world seems to me to be a form of escapism, and it depends on the charity of others who provide the necessities of life for the monks. The others often being women, which is obvious to me when reading that the Buddha was against women giving up their household duties.
I've read enough modern Buddhist stuff lately to see that Buddhist practioners are by no means immune from attachment and suffering. A person who could achieve the level of detachment necessary to be completely free from emotional suffering would not be very human.
Perhaps that is the point. However, I prefer the modern Buddhism that is more of a philosophy which helps us reduce and ease the suffering we all carry, by helping us gently reframe our worldview and adjust our lifestyle to be more in harmony with ultimate reality and each other. Final words: I skipped most of the conversation with Ananda because it was tedious. All the stuff about the essential mind is useless. Science has shown us that the mind is what the brain does.
