  3. Soul

    I have found this subject very challenging. By chance today I came across Analayo's book 'Rebirth in Early Buddhism'. I will read this and hopefully have a greater perspective. It has some good reviews. Has anybody else read this book?
  4. Mystical Christian Thread

    Jesus said, "Many are standing at the door, but it is the solitary who will enter the bridal chamber." Gospel of Thomas
