About the Book
This is some notes I put together explaining the underpinnings of my Buddhist faith. Unlike a lot of what I do it isn't footnoted to death and may appear to just be bald assertions of things, but I think that the reader may find a different perspective interesting and useful.
I'm spending most of my energies on Unicorns in the Mist, but you may find it worthwhile. I will update it occasionally.
