Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha

I don’t remember where I got this book. I think someone gave it to me? Could be. I also don’t know where this label stuck to a page came from. I was just thinking about Little Earthquakes the other day and how it was weird that I didn’t own this album. The label looks to me like it came off of a cassette tape. Who uses those anymore? It must have been stuck in this book for ages.

I’m not too sure what else to say about the book itself. It’s a collection of various teachings as per the title, and does a fair job of describing several of the different varieties of buddhism.

    I'm pretty sure that book was mine once upon a time, not that I particularly miss it. Maybe I even outright gave it to you. I think I just bought it randomly one day because I thought as a teenager I should know something about Buddhism.

    But that's definitely my handwriting on the tape label.

      Ah yeah that was my thought as well when I saw that label. Well if you would like it back I would be happy to ship it somewhere for you.

    No, you're welcome to it! If nothing else, I'm moving across the country (Japan) in two months and trying to keep my book accumulation minimal.

    (Not that I was ever any good at that…)

    But you know, also, I live in a Buddhist country. So ample opportunities to learn!
