Jim Powell. Illustrated by Joe Lee.


Eastern Philosophy is not an intellectual pursuit,
but one that involves one’s entire being. Much of
it is so deeply entwined with the non-intellectual
art of meditation, that the two are impossible to
separate. In this accessible survey of the major
philosophies of India, China, Tibet, and Japan,
Jim Powell draws upon his knowledge of Sanskrit
and Chinese, as well as decades of meditation.
Whether tackling Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu,
Dogen, the Dalai Lama or Pantajal – Powell’s
insights are deeply illuminating. All the major
philosophies are explained and everyone – from
beginner to expert – will find Eastern Philosophy
For Beginners a beautiful and insightful overview.
