Nietzsche and Buddhism

Post by Prasadachitta » Sun Jun 30, 2013 8:47 pm

A freind of mine wrote this book and I avoided reading it for quite a while. I have tended to be averse to Nietzche for completely uninformed and rather ignorant reasons. I have enjoyed it a lot and I think anyone who is interested in a comparative analysis of this philosopher and early Buddhist teaching and practice will get something out of it.

The Author who I know as Sagaramati is currently writing another edition to make some corrections but I dont know when that will come out.

If anyone does read it and would like to discuss aspects of the book I will check in from time to time.
