About Book:

This book provides a new way of understanding Buddhist thought. He argues that Buddhism is best understood as a philosophy of practice or a metapraxis and that terms such as emptiness non self and nirvana refer less to metaphysical principles than to skillful teachings that help people cultivate compassion and mindfulness. Each section of the book focuses on a debate over philosophical justification and the problem o trying to establish a fixed doctrine in Buddhist and reveals an on going debate.
