All Else Is Bondage: Non-Volitional Living
These thirty-four powerful essays, poems, and dialogs based on Taoist and Buddhist thought constitute a guide to what the author calls 'non-volitional living' -- the ancient understanding that our efforts to grasp our true nature are futile. While this may sound disheartening, fully comprehending this truth is the key to our liberation. This final volume in the author's output of eight books will make his many fans' collections of his works complete. The pseudonymous author, one of the earliest and most original interpreters of Buddhism, belongs with Reps, Watts, and Kapleau on the bookshelves of serious students of Eastern spiritual thought.
