Exploring Karma and Rebirth

by Nagapriya

Exploring Karma and Rebirth Synopsis

Exploring Karma & Rebirth is a vigorous and thought-provoking inquiry into two important but often misunderstood Buddhist doctrines. This challenging book: clarifies and critically appraises these traditional Buddhist doctrines, examines them in relation to their cultural origins and discusses whether these teachings are still relevant today, and offers an imaginative reading of what the teachings could mean for the postmodern Western world Above all, Exploring Karma & Rebirth insists that, to be of enduring value, these doctrines must continue to serve the overriding aim of Buddhism: spiritual awakening.

Exploring Karma and Rebirth Press Reviews

An excellent introduction to the complex and frequently misinterpreted Buddhist doctrines of karma and rebirth... - Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism Without Beliefs.
