The Appearance of Things,
by Vernon S.C. Castle
Date: 11th October 2016
Publisher: Dynasty Press Ltd
The true story of a young American, who in 1974 on a singular journey across Southeast Asia and India, discovers, in the words of Kalu Rinpoche, "We live in illusion, the appearance of things. There is a reality. You are that reality. When you see this, you realise you are nothing and being nothing, everything. That is all".
Crossing Asia and the Middle East he goes on to Greece, but does vivid awakening also mean wisdom in the world? For as the Buddha is meant to have said, "Sometimes the closest you can get to the truth is in the knowing of what is not true."
"In his candid and intimate account Vernon meets his youthful self and others along a dtrange and exotic journey. A most welcome and satisfying contribution to the archives of self-discovery."
