    With a pedigree in punk rock Lust for enlightenment book garage-psychedelia, and a two-decade stint in the trenches of Japanese monster movie marketing, the year-old native of Ohio is nevertheless a certifiable Zen master, part of a tightly-held Soto lineage that stretches back to Master Dogen Zenji in the 13th-century. Siddhartha remains by the gate for some time and meditates. This is very heavily dominated by French writing, although — and Hazard in no way understates this — the link with Holland is still there. Well, during the Meiji Restoration, when there was a huge push in Japan to Westernize, the Japanese Buddhists got rid of the rules of celibacy for the Buddhist clergy. So one would need to take the period between and as the first stage of this crisis — which in every other respect, Hazard describes for us very, very effectively — and the period between and as the second phase of the Enlightenment. The third of the Five Precepts is "To refrain from committing sexual misconduct.

With a pedigree in punk rock and garage-psychedelia, and a two-decade stint in the trenches of Japanese monster movie marketing, the year-old native of Ohio is nevertheless a certifiable Zen master, part of a tightly-held Soto lineage that stretches back to Master Dogen Zenji in the 13th-century. But there's a general sense that society as it exists today is not doing its job of making people happy, either on the global level, or on the individual level. He leaves his home in disgust and heads to the river. Through wild knowing and sacred mythmaking, this book is a salve for the many wounds inherent within the human condition, and a spiritual boon for the religiously perplexed.

Zen takes a completely different approach. It is interesting how half understood, second or third hand versions of stories or sayings from the Buddhist scriptures are used to justify all sorts of odd-ball ideas.

Siddhartha mediates under a banyan tree with his friend, Govinda. Siddhartha searches the forest.

Then you've got a certain number of the more traditional Buddhist crowd, who've never even heard of polyamory, who think I take a much too positive view of it.

It's very easy to deny them and stomp them down and intellectualize them away. And it's a myth to think that there are people out there for whom it's not like that. If one were to accept that, then becomes rather problematic.
