Studies in the Middle Way – being Thoughts on Buddhism applied

169 pages | Paperback | Curzon Press and the Theosophical Publishing House USA, 1984

This work sets out to empasize the inner life as a constant moving on and the mover as a pilgrim travelling along an ancient Way. This Way to ulimate Reality was called by Gautama the Buddha the Middle Way, the path between the introverted life of contemplation and the extrovert life of action in the world of men. Whilst this book as a whole is of no one school of Buddhism, it aims toward an understanding and also an application of Buddhist priciples in Western society, and a means whereby that Way may be traversed.
